  • Thors comment

    "In norse mythology is the dragonsnake Nidhögg a creature that dwells among the roots of the world tree Yggdrasil. On this pot I have depicted the beast chasing it´s own tale. Note the effect of ash from the firing on the rim."

    WAYS OF THE DRAGON october edition 2020
    "The winged serpent exist in all ancient cultures from far east to the far west. It is a symbol belonging to kings and emperors, representing gods and wisdom, healing and thunder. It brings strength, health and good fortune and is a protector of treasures. What can be more suitable to set as a guardian for the bonsai tree? In this edition I have worked with the dragon theme, mainly the japanese bearded snake with rooster feets and the norse Midgårdsormen, that roams the sea after its own tail. But also the medieval fire spitting beast that dwells in it´s treasure chambers. My favourite though, is the dragon you can hint in the shape of a cloud on the sky, or in the smoke around the fire a dark autumn evening."
