"When the soul wants to experience something she throws out an image in front of her and steps into the image.”
All Earth Smoke pieces are made in my Temple Studio, with a focus on creating potent objects that can be given as special gifts, used as magical tools, or worn as touch stone connectors to your wisdom keepers, inner guides, ancestral memories or land spirits. I create in the hope that these pieces will serve as physical ode poems to your own wild wisdom, maps to the song lines of your being, ritual tools that help to give your intention direction.
From the earth comes stone, metal, fossil, bone, and, visible to some, a smoke rises, the spirit of matter. It rises from the inner fire conjured by the maker and tended by the wearer. A magic that has the power to guide, to remind and to give strength.
These little pouches contain symbolic pieces chosen as medicine for the wearer. They are sown shut, each stitch binding the elements closely together, closing the spell and sealing it into the bag. These bundles are seed spells woven simply with the elements and the consciousness with which they are chosen and given. Under the receivers attention a relationship can develop with the Spirit Bundles enlivening the elements and kindling the fire of the spell. Like the doll in Vasilisa of the fairytales pocket the piece will require focus and attention until it's work is done.
Commissioned Spirit Bundles can be made one of two ways, either through your request i will choose the elements for its contents, or its creation can include a Bone Reading to help define the direction that this Spirit Bundle will take. These pieces begin at £65 for the bundle.
Spirits of Place
Spirit of Place pieces are created by using reusable moulds to take textures of rocks, tree or plants at special places. I think of these textures like the grooves in a record, tracing your finger tip over them recalls the essence of the place.
To commission your own Spirit of Place piece, you can contact me and i will send you a piece of re-mouldable material.
Prices for these pieces vary dependent on size, material and style of hanging so we can discuss those details once you have contacted me.
