  • Thors comment

    "People have asked me if I could offer anything for sale that I did before I started with bonsai pots. This is one of those cups I made sometime before 2008. As you see on the signature it is an early version of my stamp that says "KTH" that stands for Kristian Thor Holvila, wich is my full name. It can be used either as a cup or as a ikebana container."

  • 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."
