Obscure Runes

Doing shows, you get odd requests for work. For example, I received a commission to make custom runes for casting fortunes. The individual pieces needed to be of hand-hewn hand-carved ash. The ash came right out of the woodpile, and a froe was used to split it to the proper dimensions. So planed and carved it took little time to do, and I profited from the commission. I asked around at some shops specializing in occult paraphernalia if they’d be interested but got told that they got cheaper mass produced from China. End of the experiment.

  1. ‘mass produced from China’ **shakes head in disbelief** So there goes the joy of seeing the craftsman at a show and being able to say, “I have some pieces of your work!”

  2. “Want to see my hand carved by a skilled craftsman and artist collection of (runes or fill in anything)?”

    Or, “Want to see my cheap China made pile of fake (runes or …) I got at Walmart?”

    Carve on, Lou. 🙂 Love the pic.
