  • Thors comment

    " This pot, that is shaped like a leaf, is glazed by my wife - ceramist Carina Jern. The way she managed to pick up the palette of a flowering swedish summer meadow is amazing."

    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."
