"Tree bent and twisted growing through time. Seasons come and go, you collect the gnarls and scars sublime. Bearing flowers that fly away like snow, branches become laden, as through the summer your fruit grows. Leaves, drift and land as fall comes to play, quietly you fall asleep and dream of spring days."
~M. c. 2011
This wood is rare for me, as it is freely fallen, but from a tree over twenty years old and many miles from my home. Look over the pictures and you will see that the wand tells a story of itself, there are eyes, bends, a fairy strike and a kind of whorl pattern visible. Truly an amazing wand.
Like the Plum Wood, look for these only every once in a while.
The measurements for Avalon are: approx 12 inches long.
Widest part(near decorated end) approx 1 1/2 inches around.
At it's thinnest part (near the tip, but not) approx 1 inch around.
Our wands are created from "freely given wood". Not all wood can be wands, but when a piece is found to possess an energy compatible to wand making, it begins a journey to discover a new life.
Future wands are:
1.) Examined for shape and feel
2.) Bark removed
4.) If the wand requests designs they are added by hand at this stage.
5.) Sanded with different grades of paper until smooth
6.) Waxed with soy wax for protection and a light shine.
All wands are made in the spirit of love and wanting to bring objects of art to others.
All wands arrive with in a cloth pouch for safe keeping. (fabric varies.)
Curious about how I make these?
