About the edition "Kumatani"
After returning from Japan and one month of working with Hidemi Kataoka in Tokoname I felt the urge to get back to basics, start from the ground with unglazed rectangles, skulls and roof tile red clay. What I brought back with me was not only new tools and new techniques, it was also a new approach to the art of pot making. Therefore I decided to put down a mark at this crossroad and move into the second generation of Thor pots. I therefore placed my chop in a blue rectangle that symbolizes my new found freedom in a limited space with clear borders. My universe to explore. This is also the first edition that is stamped with the chop that read in japanese ”Kumatani”, wich translates to Valley Bear”. A name I was given that describes my position in beetween the mountains of west and east. I therefore saw it fitting to name this edition Kumatani - Dalbjörnen.
