Wands

This section of our website has been dead for too long and it is with joy that we finally present you our first pair of magical Wands. The two wands we begin with are quite different from each other, due to their origin and character. Both are hand-crafted from wood we have harvested by ourself on special occasions and are part of a row different wands we are currently working on. Please read the descriptions for each and if you find one these would resonate with yourself and your work you can get in touch via  info@teufelskunst.com and we sort out the details concerning payment and shipping.

Rowan Wand for the Urban Witch

The wand has three points and receives its character for once from its origin and secondly from a rich dark pattern caused by age and environmental influences. It was harvested from a solitary Rowan tree, which stood strong admidst a gathering of beton at a large traffic intersection in town. From its location the tree’s spirit could observe the fast moving nature of city life and radical changes in history and culture, yet it ever remained there as a silent observer, untouched and unmoved by the happenings around it, a symbol of strength and souvereignity, which would shine in deep green and bright red colors within an otherwise gray scenery. Another interesting aspect of this wand is its two-sided nature arising from its distinctive pattern and coloring: the bottom side is of a darker hue and has a rich pattern whilst the top is of a light-yellow color. The wand could be viewed as unifying opposites of light and dark, positive and negative, active and passive in a single magical weapon. The whirls and banding remind of olive wood, but with a red hue. The wand has a very smooth surface (in harmony with the royal nature of this wood) and has been oiled with almond oil, which brought out the wonderful dark pattern even more. The photos actually do not do it justice. The wand measures 43 cm (17”) in length and the handle is 2,2 cm (0,9”) in diameter. It feels wonderful to hold and is a pleasure for the tactile senses. Possible applications would be healing and protection magic, wisdom work, contacting the ancestral spirit world (particularly for those who lived an urban live) and meditation. Due to its origin it bears also associations with urban history, culture and theatres. Origin: Dresden

Price: 49 EUR

Status: AVAILABLE

Pyracantha Snake Wand

pyracantha – thorny shrub of the apple family, from Modern Latin genus name Pyracantha, from Greek pyrakantha (Dioscorides), from pyr– “fire” + akantha “thorn, thorny plant,” from the root ak– “sharp, pointed”

The Wand is crafted from Firethorn wood, resembling the shape of a snake, and has been oiled with almond oil. It measures 45 cm in length and the handle ca. 2 cm in diameter. It is a small, handsome, inconspicuous, elegant piece, which was harvested from a special location. Due to its origin it bears invisible connections to the realm of the Dead. It is an overall benific wand, not fundamentally inimical but certainly fiery and spirited in character, which possesses also the power to bolster a curse and unleash a blazing attack against an enemy, when it is needed. It would fit to a bantam and vivacious person, and would be applied foremost in protection and/or defense spellwork, magic involving the element fire, heating up a spell and would constitute a lovely fetish in the hands of fire, serpent and thorn fetishists. In inverse magic the wand could also aid in cooling and taming the spirits, particularly when a situation has become too heated up. As with any magical tool, the outcome of the spell is in the operator’s hands and depends on how the tools are utilized. There are no guarantees.

The wand is available for purchase together with a powder consisting of the wooden dust left from crafting, dried firethorn berries, thorns and leaves.

Price: 49 EUR

Easter Yew Wands (of Harrowing and Hallowing)

575812_571774319513709_2124106052_n++++

Devil thy name, Trickster at the Crossroads of Midnight
Come forth, Corpse-pale Eidolon of the Osseous Field
Ever-poised in thy Goat-black Cowl that shrouds Mortality,
Master of the Passage ‘twixt Wax & Wane do I seek.
Thirteen times Widders around the Tree do I turn
Here, sheltered ‘neath the boughs of your Faithful Kin:
The Cypress and the Yew, I do lay the Furrow of Mortality
Wherein the Maw of Void makes sweet the promise of Annihilation
And sundry veils rent so rouse the Blessing of Certain Death.

Saviour thy name, Leveller at the Cross of Midday
Convoke here, Golden-toned Christ of the Paradise Found
Ever-steady in meagre Lamb-white Fleece that cloths Eternity,
King of the Pathway of Virture & Vice do I hunt.
Thrice times halved ‘til the 3rd day the loaf do I break
Here, knelt ‘neath the married beams of the Rood:
Transference & Transcendence, I do raise the Ridge of Eternity
Wherein the Gates of Heaven make bitter the dreams of Man
And all sinful debts settled so pay the Boon of Life Eternal.

13 Wands, harvested from 13 old Yew trees on the Midnight leading into Good Friday, under the light of the waning moon. Due payments of libation, bread and blood have been served to the guardian of the ghoulish yet immensely beautiful trees. For three days and nights the bread is being broken to them and their wood prepared. Each wand is then  cleansed in the waters of the sacred Heathen Spring of Avalon. Finally braids taken from the red cloth of the crucifix put out on the Good Friday and the white cloth draped over the cross to symbolise the resurrection on Sunday are bound around them.

The wands are not carved or varnished and can be crafted and shaped further by those who do not have access to this special type of Olde Yew wood from trees, which have been guarding the graves and crossroads of life and death for centuries. There are alltogether 10 wands available for sale:

  • 5 wands with a braid of 2 red 1 white – the Wands of Harrowing
  • 5 wands with a braid of 2 white 1 red – the Wands of Hallowing

Attached to the end of each wand is also one tail-feather of a Raven, the Prophet of Man and the Oracle of Hades, gathered through a beautiful specimen found during a sojourn in the Forest, a gift from the Sylvan Realm. A satchel of Yew needles and bark will accompany each wand, with a hand-numbered label.

*

The Yew is the Man in Black at the Crossroads, the Patron of the Souls kept in She’ol and also of the Ancestors. It is also the tree of Dark Resurrection and thus sometimes the Man in Black is viewed crucified to a Yew arbor.

The wands are a kind offer by woodwose, wanderer, sorcerer, word cunner and friend Ash Nostro Morg.

Info, pictures and prices will follow after Easter. Only one wand per customer.
