  • Thors comment

    "This glaze is inspired by the lichen we tradionally collect around Jul and put around the candles we fire inside during the dark hours. On one side of this rectangle is the inprint of my chop, but covered in glaze it actually looks more like the little window of my loghouse that is now covered in meter deep snow."

  • 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."
