"This green is one of my favourites, but also one of the trickiest to get thick and even. It very easily comes out watery, or runs down on the floor, if you are not carefull enough. To apply it on an large oval also ads another level of difficulty. Oval as a shape, and green as a colour, is very usefull and versitile since it suits a lot of different spieces and most styles of upright tree."
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."
