Pyrography Oak Leaf Triskel Wooden Box

  • £50.00

This one of a kind product was created by Villkat Arts exclusively for Northern Fire.

It features the leaves of an oak tree, mentioned in both Celtic and Nordic mythology as a sacred species affiliated with both Druids and Thor alike.

Specifically within this piece, Ash has incorporated the shape of a triskele, within the leaves and the top of the box. 

The symbol of the triskele can be found in Northern Europe from around 5000 years ago, when it was most notably carved into Newgrange stones of Ireland. But it most definitely was not confined to this time period. It now exists as an identifying motif for the Celtic and British Isles as well as across the globe.

Many believe the three lobes represent the dimensions of life; youth, adulthood, and old age...or perhaps the land, sky, and sea. There are hundreds of ancient forms of wisdom tied to the symbol of three, unfolding and refolding upon itself in spirals.

The only thing that can be certain is that it inspires reflection upon our place in time and the spiritual realm.


Material & Make

The use of fire to manipulate natural materials is one of the most ancient forms of artistry. Pyrography has been discovered on artefacts globally such as bone, wood, leather, and even stone.

Each piece is uniquely one of a kind, having been hand worked by the artisan to compliment the dimension of the design and respect the natural grain of the wood.
