  • Thors comment

    "To give this pot a more primitive and ancient look I gave it tall chubby feets to stand on, and I did not glaze it all the way down on the wall, a nonchalant style that gives it that carefree touch that I like so much. The glazing is superb where you can actially trace the fumes rising from the clay over the surface. one side has cobalt streaks, the other is plain forest green."

    About the edition "Blue Hours”
    "This edition is named after that phenomen that when it is neither day or night, in the twilight when you can see the blue light of space arraying through. "Blå timmen." Blue is dominant up here in the north now. Days are quickly getting shorter. Flowers are long gone and green is the only colour that accompanies the blue sky and ocean. So glazes I used pulls from deep ocean cobalt, to beach turquoise, cloudy sky to classical oribe, geen and yellows. All on clean shapes that has provided me with a canvas. I hope you enjoy this labour of love."
