Thors comment: 

"This pot stands on extremely low feet that are placed far inside not to be seen and give the impression that the pot hang in the air just above the table. The four feet are sculpted like four kings."

  • About this edition

    THOR EDITIONS is handmade, unique and numbered pots that are released once a month under a dedicated theme

    "I am Swedish on my mother's side and Finnish on my father's side and Thor is the name of the Scandinavian god of thunder. In Finland, his name is Perkele, which is a nickname for Ukko, which Christianity later made synonymous with the devil. Hence the Finnish profanity "Satana Perkele!" To me he is like Thor the god of the people and the farmers. He rides across the thundering sky and lets the rain fall on the harvest and brings forth life. This month I have therefore devoted myself to sculptured pots with Perkele in mind. What could be a better theme for pots to house a tree than the life-giving god?"
