”I had an ancient Chinese censer in mind when I built this rectangle on tall feet and wanted it to feel like it was carved out of stone. Something was missing on the front, a lion's head or ring felt wrong, so I found one of my Viking silver coins and printed it as a Norse seal on a round plate on the front. The other side of the pot has received a few splashes of a dull forest green glaze that lies like moss on the stones at a holy spring."

THOR ABOUT THE EDITION - JULETID
"We are now entering Juletid (Time for Jule), the darkest days of the year. Before Christianity came to Sweden, Jul was celebrated at midwinter and people sacrificed to house elves and locked themselves up to keep the forces of darkness out. Winter and darkness would be appeased so that warmth and light could return and people would keep the hope and faith alive that light would return, it was important to look forward. The Bible tells of Lot's wife who cannot let go of the past and is turned to stone when she looks back to see her city getting destroyed by the angels. Clinging to the past and not looking forward destroys hope, so carry the hope of a brighter future in your heart during these dark times and let's celebrate Juletid."
