"This hand sculptured piece depicts a "vätte", which according to Norse mythology is a guardian of the forest and lakes. It has a hole in the hand, so it can hold a stick or work as an incense holder. But first and all it is my idea that it will function as an accent/figurine."
About this edition
THOR EDITIONS is handmade, unique and numbered pots that are released once a month under a dedicated theme.
""The centerpiece of this edition is a sculpture of a Vätte, a small guardian that lives in the forest. Vätte can also mean Water in Swedish which is the theme I have focused on in this edition with pots in all a range of sizes and different blues and decorated with sculptures of water creatures. Spring is starting to arrive here in Sweden now and the melting snow is filling up the streams and rivers, so I find the theme very suitable. That my cabin sits on a mountain named Vättlefjäll/Watermountain makes it even better."
