Amazing photos from @annethearcher ・・・
"The women of this country learned long ago, those without swords can still die upon them. I fear neither death nor pain." -Eowyn

I really wanted to re-make the shoot from last year, and use some of my new equipment, so here we are! Same location, same girl, new outfit. 📸 By @jankevinbrunvoll

Amazing runestone carvings from @riimunkaivertajienkilta
This was a comissioned work for a sea captain by his wife, hence the maltese cross and the anchor shape pattern. This is also a big one. Rough estimate is 500kgs and about 150cm tall.

Seamstress of the Gods and Norns @midgaarb ・・・
Harness the power of this sacred time of year. Grow stronger each day as the nature surrounding us grows. The endless flows and strength of the water as she nourishes. Channel the raw primal fiery energy of this powerful month. The energy channeled and cherished by those that have come before us. The spring and summer is our time to focus on what we want, what will allow us to survive fall and winter. To turn our dreams into reality. Don’t hesitate. This is the time to utilize our strength and the energy of this time to become even stronger and wiser for the future with more focus and intent.

One of my favorite pages @fellandfair ・・・
“Then Túrin bowed before them, and took his leave. And soon after he put on the Dragon-helm, and took arms, and went away to the north-marches, and was joined to the elven-warriors who there waged unceasing war upon the Orcs and all servants and creatures of Morgoth.” ~Tolkien
-
I remember being 17 years old, riding my bike back from the bookstore where I had pre-ordered The Children of Húrin. As soon as I got hope I opened it and began to read. I wept as I read because I was reading new, beautiful words written by Tolkien, when I thought I had already read them all. Since then I have been captivated by the story of the family of men who defined the Dark Lord and suffered for it. And I have long desired to posses the Dragon-helm itself. Thanks to our Patreon supporters, we were able to recreate the cover art of the book by Alan Lee. Many more photos to come as we tell the story of the House of Hador and it’s war with Morgoth through pictures! -

Amazed as always by @sacred_knot_tattoo
・・・
Work in progress. Stephan has ventured down from Scotland once again for a few more days of enduring me carving the tales of the Nordic gods in their last moments of glory, #ragnarok , upon his skin. The main element on his chest is the myth of Frey on his golden boar attacking Surt, chaos itself (as I also tattooed earlier this week on Giuseppe). On his neck standing at the prow of Naglfar, the ship manned by a thousand oars on each side and made of dead men’s nails, is Loki. The trickster god and father of lies.
It has taken many hours of work to get this far with the project, and there are still a few more to go. Stephan has allowed me to try out a million untested ideas by myself, and continues to do so. I can’t wait to see how this one turns out :) #norse #norsetattoo #norsemythology #nordic #nordictattoo #viking #vikingship #vikingtattoo #knotwork #dotwork #dotworktattoo #blackwork #blackworktattoo #ragnaroktattoo #ragnarok #loki #fenris #end #art #artistsoninstagram #heathen #naglfar #giant #jormungand #wip #tattoos #hel #knot #sacred #thespearandshield

@hedgeandcave has amazing work going on sale Tomorrow! ・・・
These are now listed!
Also, I realised i missed a bit of an opportunity to kinda introduce myself when i posted a rare selfie yesterday.

So, hello 🖖 i'm Guy 😘 i'm behind this stuff and thank you as i get a lot of encouragement here which is invaluable .. i'm British, mid 40's, husband to a remarkably understanding woman and father to a grubby but wonderful boy of 11. Hedgeandcave has only really been a thing since November 2016 when i decided to start selling my antler rings, sun wheels, sticks and ceremonial weapons online and decided to try to grow as a craftsman and add some real quality and personality to what i do.

Essentially, i make stuff i like 😋 i try to avoid doing stuff i see lots of other peeps doing, and i often start a piece all over again (or nearly) if i am not happy with it.

I have no workshop, this is all done on my kichen table or sitting on the back porch 🤘

I got hooked on antler when teaching myself how to flintknap about 9 years ago - i'd been using hammerstones and needed antler for softer hammers. I fell in love with the stuff immediately tried making a ring (i'd never seen an antler ring). I loved it, made a bunch more that week just in the evenings (like a maniac) and gave myself tendonitis in the process 🤕😂 I used to work in a variety of roles with a lot of crafters and artists at a therapeutic college for teens with Autism, learning and/or behavioral difficulties etc, and picked up a lot of transferable stuff there as well as teaching primitive skills - but everything you see here is self taught, learned from reading, watching and just experimenting.

Big piece of crafting advice from some dude who makes stuff in his kitchen?
Just do it. Try making it. Dont be afraid to break it. Heck. Try to break it and then make another thats better

Pyrography wood burning underway for upcoming "Invicible" Viking Shield for @descendedfromodin featuring the #aegishjalmur or #helmofawe which is a protection symbol and also thought to give invincibility and victory in battle. The overlays are their logo, and younger futhark that will cause colors to change. I just got this Boar Spear too, thinking of burning and staining the handle..

Seriously the best patches I own and so much more from @thorsthreads
・・・ SVARTALFHEIM
I wandered into the mountains and found a passageway deep inside the earth. Down, down, deeper, further into the stone and earth it lead me. Far under the mountain did I meet the dwarves in their halls of stone. I sat at the table of Eitri and Brokkr and learned many secrets of their craft. Such skill they have, able to smith metal as fine as silk and strong as steel. I gave them artifacts of the outside world and when we parted ways they gave me goods to return to the surface with. Powerful talismans woven from dwarven skill and finery. Behold the Mjölnir and Vegvisir of Svartalfheim. I have but 10 of each available in store, thou must be quick if thou wouldst claim one.

Top notch leather work from @embercraftcreations
・・・
Using a combination of Ingwaz, Othila, and Dagaz, this bindrune promotes everlasting unity and peace in the homestead, especially in times of transformation.
---------------------------------------------------------------------
I just finished up this belt today, which beautifully matches one of the pouches I made yesterday! They both use the same Bindrune design and both have the green and black vignette coloring. I think they could be a wonderful set together... stop by @moniquerancourtjewelry gallery this Saturday during @watchcityfestival to see them in person! ---------------------------------------------------------------------

Christian @artforvalhalla made this fantastic Viking Shield plank for us, representing the death of Fáfnir.
.
.
In the Icelandic Völsunga Saga (13th Century), Fáfnir was a dwarf. His father was Hreidmar, King of the Dwarves, and he had two brothers, Ótr and Regin. According to the saga, the Æsir gods Odin, Loki and Hœnirand, killed an otter with a stone, not knowing it was Ótr in disguise. Hreidmar then held Odin and Hœnirand hostages until Loki brought as ransom the otter skin of Ótr filled with gold, as reparations for slaying is son. Loki fulfilled the task but gathered the cursed gold of Andvari as well as the magical ring Andvaranaut. Loki knew because of Andvari's curse, that the items would bring about death and destruction on whoever possessed them, so he offered them to the Dwarven King for the release of Odin and Hœnirand.

The gold and ring's curse caused greed and madness to possess the royal family. The dwarven prince Fáfnir killed Hreidmar, his father, seeking the gold and magic ring for himself, becoming very ill-natured and greedy, and going into the wilderness to protect his precious treasure. The curse eventually turned him into a wyrm, obsessed with guarding his treasure. He also breathed poison into the surrounding countryside, to keep outsiders away.

Regin, being denied his share of the gold, seeks out the aid of Sigurd, tempting him with tales of the dragon’s gold. Regin instructed Sigurd to dig and hide in a pit under a trail Fáfnir used to get to a stream for a drink, and plunge his sword, Gram, into Fafnir's heart. As Sigurd dug, Odin appeared in the form of an old man, advising the warrior yo dig more trenches for the blood to run into. As Fáfnir appeared, Sigurd stabbed him in the left shoulder, mortally wounding the dragon. But as Fáfnir lay dying, he told Sigurd that Regin would betray him and cause Sigurd's death, and warned him that all who possess the gold will be fated to die.

Sigurd didn’t believe it, but as he cooked Fáfnir's heart, he ate a few bites. This allowed him to understand the language of birds who advised him to kill Regin, because he'd been corrupted by the ring and was plotting his death.

PROTECT THE KING! Amazing custom game sets from @ignited.arts.design
・・・
This order left today for it's new owners - a set of Copenhagen variant hnefatafl boards, with cast pieces and boxes to store them in. I made everything from base materials, including casting the pieces in a dental stone medium and hand painting each one. The boards and boxes are constructed from maple, with the exception of the slide tops and compartmented inserts, which are ash. The Jellinge dragons which adorn these sets are a historical piece, and were done with a light and dark theme on each board. All artwork and shading was performed by hand through the art of pyrography. The dragons also adorn the board's box for the playing pieces, which were stained to match (red chestnut and special walnut). The boxes' slide tops are held closed by neodymium magnets.

I will be producing more cast pieces and listing them in my online store in the coming weeks, as well as the boxes for storage. Boxes will be sized according to the number of playing pieces for each hnefatafl variant. New colors for the playing pieces are now available; in addition to the Hacksilver and Aged Copper currently available, there is also Tusk, Dusted Onyx (pictured), and Oxblood (pics coming soon!) I am also working on a Jade paint scheme... I like to paint too!

This Targe is featured today on @thespearandshield . If you enjoy seeing the work of a variety of amazing artisans who practice ancient arts you need to go check out their feed an follow them. It's an honor for me to be included. This particular shield was commissioned. It features four beasts of the north hand tooled into the leather and is accented with a hand hammered etched brass boss. #thespearandshield #celticleatherworks #targe #highlandtarge #ancientarts #handtooledleather #handhammeredbrass

Amazing carved War Horns, Antler Pendants, and more from @thebeardinthenorth
・・・
The Uppsala Warhorn is finally complete. The carving on this horn was inspired by a Rune stone found in Uppsala, Sweden. .
.
.
Many hours of work went into this piece. This one will be mine forever as a remind of what I can do, and where I came from when I started carving. This is really only the 4th or 5th horn I have carved. .
.
.
I would really like to start doing a few of these a year. Not sure if as commissions, or just as whatever my mind can muster. They would be high priced items for sure. But, all of the work, heart and soul that goes into it, would make anyone proud to own one. Let me know what you think about this idea!
.
.
.
Thank you to everyone who kept tabs on the progress of this one! It was a long road, but well worth it. #viking #vikings #asatru #pagan #heathen #heathenmade #lordoftherings #thehobbit #jrrtolkien #skyrim #eldersrolls #gameofthrones #odin #pagansofinstagram #norse #norsemythology #vikingsofinstagram #thor #ragnarlothbrok #bjornironside #lotr #freya #oldgods #createandconquer #greatheathenarmy #beardinthenorth #art #carving #horn #thespearandshield

So for those of you who didn't realize or get a chance to see... here it is finally finished.

For those of you who have signed up for my mailing list to receive notifications about new work of mine for sale; thank you so much!
I apologize that I've not sent out an email with new work for several months now.

This year has been a busy one full of traveling and major transitions (moving into a new shop and home) and busily finishing up old prior commitments and commissioned orders for patient clients.

I likely will not be sending out any new emails with available work until the end of this year since I'm so busy finishing up current work. But don't loose hope! For those of you who so kindly would like to own my work; I will absolutely have many new swords, knives, axes, spears, and original art available for sale later this winter.
