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."
Carina Jern 23-045
width: 144 mm / 5.7"
height: 51 mm / 2.0"
deep inside: 34 mm / 1.3"
Clay: Bone white
Rakuglazed and lowfired and therefore not frost resistant
Thors comment: "This pentagonal pot is raku-fired. The smoke has penetrated both the clay and the glaze, coloring it black. As raku is low-fired goods, this means that it is only suitable for indoor or tropical use as it is not frost-resistant."
