"My idea with this pot was to make a "death mask" to symbolize the death of summer and beginning of winter. It is made so it can be planted in both the skull, mouth and eye sockets. A totally unique piece that is the crown jewel that headlines this edition."

About the edition "Seasonal Leaves”
"Floating on the surface of the fish pond is the leaves of this season. Like turned pages they are reminding me about the story of this summer. Brown, purple and green with yellow spots, small and broken they tangle into the branches of my bonsai. Cover the benches as they fall. The cold mornings whisper that there will soon be snow on the ground and darkness will once again lay itself over the lands. Summer is dead. Long live the summer."
