Animist Reliquaries - The Elementals Collection

And what are reliquaries? From the Catholic tradition, reliquaries were vessels which held holy relics from saints or pieces of them. Well, while I am not of that tradition, the practice and concept intrigued me. What if we see Nature as Holy? What would the relics be if not Nature themselves? Nature as an animist being or collective rather than a thing or object? That is the spirit to which I created my Animist Reliquaries and to which I shall continue to make them.

The Elementals collection harkens to the wild elements of Nature. On different themes and stories, it ties directly back to the raw and mysterious elementals themselves for those who may not always have access to such things in their life.

The Understory : This reliquary has something of The Hermit about it. A quietness and solitude from its contents of lichen, moss, seeds, acorns, and other such fallen elements of the forests. For contemplation of the Wild and long days with only nature as a companion. Please note each reliquary is unique so you may not receive the exact one pictured.

Ocean : This reliquary is a potent call to the ocean. Sealed in pearly white wax, it contains sea salt harvested by hand, crushed sea shells, and tansy gathered from the New Hampshire seacoast. To work with the greatness of the Ocean, no matter how far. Please note each reliquary is unique so you may not receive the exact one pictured.

Earth : A reliquary to connect with the bones of the earth. Salt infused with juniper and bay laurel is blended with crushed labradorite. For protection and magic-it remains unsealed if you would like to use the salt in your workings. Please note each reliquary is unique so you may not receive the exact one pictured.
