Unique set of 24 ceramic Runes handmade with love and intention featuring the Eldar Futhark alphabet, crafted, glazed and fired in our Devon workshop.
Runes are symbols that were used by the ancients for magic and later for writing. Their origin is shrouded in mystery, but they seem to have come from Etruria, a kingdom in the land we now call Italy, and worked their way up through Germany to Scandinavia, where they were at their height of popularity during the first millennium (0-1000AD).
At first the runes were just used for divining and magic, but the people of Northern Europe started to use them for writing messages as well. Each rune represents something in its magical sense, and also represents a sound in its writing sense and the sounds usually match up with the magical meaning.
They are glazed on one side and approx size is size 20mm. You have the choice of either a natural cotton bag or a recycled suede bag, please just advise when ordering which you would prefer.
All our handcrafted items are created with love, positive intentions and just a little magick )0(
