Description

I craft tools for myself, shamanic practitioner colleagues and clients who decide to embrace simple yet beautiful rituals in their own lives. Whilst items are primarily made to be working tools rather than decorative ornaments, the rugged power of the natural materials used appeals to many. None of the items I make utilise synthetic materials in their construction. My preferred fixative is hide glue; cordage is either nettle, flax, cotton or hemp and lacing is either gut, sinew, rawhide, suede or leather. Protective finishes are beeswax, olive oil and raw linseed oil. Wood may come bone polished, flint-scraped or as is. Items are made in batches according to season. All materials are sourced from the UK apart from wild turkey feathers which are sourced from the USA and nettle yarn which is sourced from a Transrural Trust project in Nepal that assists women in disadvantaged rural areas.

My largest and most elaborate fans are made from four wild turkey secondary feathers bound to Scottish red deer antler with hide glue, to which various secondary feather decorations are added. They are trimmed with white ostrich belly or turkey marabou/T-base feathers and finished with buffalo hide lace. The price includes the cost of a bespoke double-walled shipping container.

Length: 42 - 48cm Weight: 110 - 160g
