" This pot is an old friend that has come with me to events in Poland, France, Belgium and UK, but hasnt met his bride yet. With his primitive decor and sturdy feets, most maybe would consider him difficult to plant in, but I love him for his carachter and amazing oxblood colour, that unfortunatly comes out as brownish in the photos. If he doesnt find a spouce in this Thor webstore debut I will accompany him to the altar where there is a pink rose waiting for him in my garden."

About the august edition "Fruits And Flowers”
"Fruit-bearing, and some flowering trees, generally requires two things of the pot they are planted in. A good depth for health of the roots and supply of water, and a color that can match their grandeur. Several of the pots in this edition are created with these properties in mind. The purple/violett glaze goes very well together with orange and yellow, and so does the blue. The green glaze match very nicely all kinds of red, and so does a red pot to green leaves. White and pink goes beautyfully with ocher/sand."
