stained glass, high fire clay, glazes
Light sounding Vegvisir glass wind chime made from high fire clay and fused glass.
I hand-rolled 4" clay disc (10cm) and carved it with the sacred Icelandic Runic symbol, the Vegvisir compass, fired, then glazed and fired once again.
Strands of iridescent and bronze glass are decorated with agate, hematite and metal beads, Swarovski crystal beads, and one central handmade clay bead. The chime terminates in one of my ceramic Viking Warrior bind rune pendants!
Total length from top of hook to bottom is 19" long (48 cm). The hook is made of chainmail rings and steel.

It is a Norse protection symbol, which has a deep meaning. The Icelandic word literally means ??guidepost? or ??direction sign?. In modern popular culture, the Vegv?sir is often called Runic Compass or See the Way. It is often associated with the Viking Age, which is not correct: this symbol is from the 17th-century Icelandic grimoire called Galdrab??k (??magic book?). The origin of this type of witchcraft is difficult to ascertain: to some extent, it derives from medieval mysticism and renaissance occultism, but also has a few connections with the ancient Germanic runic tradition. Vegv?sir was drawn on one?s forehead with blood to prevent a person from getting lost.
