  • Thors comment

    "I make these cut corner pots by carving them out from one piece of clay. I like the frame it gives to the tree with that wide rim. You might say it is a classical japanese shape, but the inspiration mainly comes from roman furniture. The glaze is outstanding on this piece and no photo can do it justice."

  • About this edition

    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."
