Corn and grain,
corn and grain,
All that falls
shall rise again.

I created this cauldron as an ode to the myths and magic of Samhain. Samhain is an ancient Irish harvest celebration and fire festival that also marked the beginning of the new year. It is the precursor to modern Halloween. It was thought that on this night the barrier between the otherworld and mortal world was thinnest, lending the perfect opportunity for divination and love magic, protection and abundance rituals, and ancestor tributes. As scythes swayed through the fields for the final harvest, farmers across each village tended their fires and shuttered their windows against the cold and dark half of the year. I crafted this vessel in reverence to my ancestors who partook in these practices, in awe of the approaching thinning veil, and in ritual celebration of the turning seasons. A rosecut cognac quartz flickers and glows within a handmade pumpkin that is crowned by a crescent moon and cradled by a handmade scythe and stalk of wheat. This imagery comes together in symbolic tribute to the reaping of what was sown in the previous year, to the dying earth that is sure to be reborn, the abundance promised after the dark half of the year passes once more. Seven smoky quartz points spring forth from the cauldron, signifying abundance and radiating grounding energy. My maker's mark and .925 for sterling adorn the back of the cauldron, and the entire piece has been blackened and polished for the appearance of a recently unearthed ancient relic.
