"This very roughly executed pot is a first generation (2013) Thor pot numbered "#49" counting from the very first bonsai pot I made. It has been in my gallery, where I have saved a few of my earliest pot designs. But I have now decided to let it go. Square pots are rare, and mainly due to that they are not so sought after. It should be used as equivalent to a round pot, but where the tree has much more masculine features. It also has the benefit to give you four fronts."

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."
