THOR ABOUT THE EDITION - by Carina Jern
"For those of you who have followed me and my work, it probably hasn't escaped to notice that my wife and life partner Carina Jern plays a big role in my work. She not only glazes some of my pots, especially the smaller and colorful ones, she was also in Japan and worked together with Hidemi "Shuhou" Kataoka at the Yoshimura kiln in Tokoname at the same time as me. She also took the opportunity there to further develop her interest in Ikebana, Suiban and Kusamono, three of the art forms she primarily focus on, alongside Shitakusa and Bonsai pots. I have therefore chosen to strike a blow for her work this month as I am in deep gratitude to her and want her work to reach a greater audience. So let me introduce Carina Jern with a selection of her unique shapes and spectacular colors."

Thors comment: "It's hard to pull off a flower-like shape like this without it stealing too much attention. This purple glaze also has a lot of life in it as it pulls both towards blue and oxblood red. Complements nicely with yellow."
