"Several of the pots glazed in this new glaze combination I made especially for this edition did not survive the firing due to its running properys. This pot survived due to its unglazed feets and I treasure it highly since the effect was so unique and have given the pot four great fronts to choose from. I hope to be able to tame this recipe and in the future make it into one of my trademark glazes."
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."
