  • Thors comment

    "I have a long tradition of picking up a little piece of clay and make those small "vättar" or "tomtar", wich is the little people living among the roots of our "vårdträd", holy trees that you find in most swedish gardens. At this time of year you put out some food for them to have them on your side, cause they can be naughty small people and get you in to trouble. I have left a little cavity in the knee of the vätte where you can put a piece of moss, a friut, a flower or a pine cone. That is usually what I do and use them as accents/companions to my bonsai."

  • About this edition

    THOR EDITIONS is handmade, unique and numbered pots that are released once a month under a dedicated theme.

    "The name of this edition - God Jul, translates to "Great Wheel" from swedish. It is the the yearly celebration when midwinter occurs and when the wheels are turning and pass the gone year into the shadows. It is that magical moment when life and death walk hand in hand. In the old days sacrificed animals and men where hanged in the evergreen holy tree, and their blood was spilled in the white snow. So this edition contains the traditional Jul colours. Green as the tree, red as the blood, white as the snow and black as the darkest night."
