Earlier this year, in summer, i was working on the stag hunting spear for a customer, my friend Myles Mulkey feeled inspired and wrote an awesome poem about it. It struck a long tuned string in me, so i asked Myles if he want to collaborate in a project, once again tieing spiritual and material culture of long gone ancestors.
We made the deal, that when i will tink that some of my pieces is somehow worthy of getting poem about it, Myles would compose this poem.
Here are pictures of 3 of our first 4 endeavours. Enjoy!
This is the above mentioned spear with Patternwelded blade and bronze socket
This one is tied to the line of knives i make, all with the wildboar motive. Their name is Hildiswin
And finaly, the big patternwelded knife i made, Emblar brodir
