Wands

Locally sourced woods are used for the Wands.

Each one is unique and natural.

The wood is hand sanded and finished with Linseed Oil to bring out the woods beauty.

Some are left to a natural point, some have a crystal embedded in the tip. Bark can be left on, stripped off or a bit of both!

Twisted Wands are a natural occurance by wild Honeysuckle growing and wrapping itself around the branch.

Roll over bark is another natural occurance when the wood is damaged it attempts to 'heal' itself by growing fresh bark over the 'wound'.

*No trees were harmed intentionally.

The delicate issue of Wand Gathering

As with the woods for the Athames and Bolines, Wands are collected with utmost respect for tree. We don't just go around hacking off branches here, there and everywhere!

David is an intermediate Bonsai Artist and uses his knowledge to help gather wood. Sometimes, a branch will be removed to protect the tree from further damage. eg: Wild honey suckle growing around and into the branch. Other times it could be to help balance the tree. There have been occasions when hunting for wood, a particular branch will 'offer' itself for cutting.

All cutting is done surgically and cuts are sealed with professional tree sealant to prevent infections.

Offerings are left at the base of the tree in forms of water, plant food or crystals.

Always, permission is gained from the tree's Guardian.
