Deep within abundant endings stir the seeds of fresh beginnings

This one honours masculine energy and Mabon.

Sometimes in the work to achieve a healthy balance and relationship between the masculine and feminine elements of life, the masculine can get a bit of a bad rap. Being out of balance in either direction has consequences.

Whether Pan or Cernunnos, Pashupati, Puck, Pachacamac, Veles, Lord of the Winter, Hu Gadarn, or Belatucadros ( just to name a few ), many cultures celebrate a connection to horns or antlers and a male figure that dies and is reborn through the agricultural year.

“Deep within abundant endings stir the seeds of fresh beginnings” speaks to the myth of death and rebirth for the good of all. At harvest when life energies are turned from growing plants to delicious meals, when seeds are collected and stored, ready for planting in spring or when one man gives all to ensure continuing safety for others, sacrifice becomes an integral part of the myths and legends of the Horned One.

Description

Each individually handcrafted 13 inch beech wood spoon comes via a protected, managed forest in Europe. Once in Canada, they are charmed with a laser engraver and dipped in a bath of grape seed oil and melted beeswax which brings out the grain and deepens the tone of the wood. Washing in warm water, by hand, and the occasional wipe with a food safe oil will help extend the life of a Kitchen Wand. The image is burned into the wood and will not “come off”. Over time though, as the patina of use develops, the image and the engraving on the handle “My Kitchen Wand” may soften.

The description of this design is easily accessible to customers through an information only webpage on the Kitchen Wand tag.
