Ash is a hermaphrodite tree carrying both female and male energy and is closely aligned to the elemental Earth. Ash is a sacred tree of the Celts and the Greeks associated this tree with Neptune and Mercury. The Druids associated this tree with the adder. The Nords held this tree sacred to Woden (Odin), the Nordic World Tree, Yggdrasil, is an Ash tree and is considered to be the father of all trees. The Welsh associated this tree with the God Gwydion. It is considered to be the Tree of Life.
The Ash tree and its wood help instil peace of mind and good health and it contains the qualities of reliability, faithfulness and loyalty.
Ash being a sacred Celtic tree we have also burnt the Ogham symbol of nion on the bottom for extra energy and protection.Approx size 11cm/4" at its highest point and 17cm/6.5" diameter.
Justin likes to maintain the natural feel and energy of the wood as much as possible, so the bowl has been finished with oil and wax and then polished to a high gloss and durable finish.
