" I smiled a bit for myself when I took this pot out of the kiln. It is probably the pot I have ever made that so clearly shows my sensei Shuhous influence on my work. Maybe its the clay, the swedish Fyle, that resembles the tokoname clay so much in colour and properties. But it is also the chubby feets covered in glaze, as if the glaze was sprayed on in thick layers, like Hidemi does. A little piece of my heart goes away with this pot. Treasure it, whoever you are."
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."
