"This pot stands on feet made as viking helmets. On this piece I made them as I vision they would have looked if made on a wooden stick with a knife, or on a pole with an axe. I have used a granite gray clay and some of the eye sockets are filled with a red glaze for an intense look."

THOR´S COMMENT ABOUT THE EDITION - "Enhärjare"
"A "Enhärjare" is a Nordic warrior who excelled on the battlefield and fell with honor and courage intact. "Enhärjare" in Old Norse have the meaning "soul sacrifice". His or hers sacrifice guaranteed a place in the afterlife by Freja's side in the hall Sessrumne, or at Allfader in Valhall. I dedicate this edition in memory of my brother Mikael. He took the fight, no matter where, or against whom it stood. To the end, he fought against injustice and devoted his life to saving young people from a fate of exclusion or crime. To you Mikael, I raise a Skål and know that we will soon be sitting side by side again."
