"This pot has a lot going on. Along the rim I have carved "Thor carved the rune Midgårdsormen". The Midgårdsormen/Middle earth serpent is, according to Norse mythology, the beast that dwells in the world ocean. The sculptures, on both sides, depicts him chasing his own tail."
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."
