Time to travel to the Renaissance!

If you would have told me last year at this time that I would be leaving my teaching career to be a time-traveling larping potter, I would have said you were crazy. But here we are, and I couldn’t be more excited to be joining the NJ Renaissance Faire for the 2024 season, an exciting opportunity to travel through time with my wares. 

The year is sometime in the 1500s. Queen Elizabethian era. A time where magic is believed in, but also feared. This leads to the enactment of the Witchcraft Act of 1563, a mass hysteria spreads throughout England and Scotland, kickstarting the infamous ‘Witch Trials,’

that eventually make their way to Salem, Massachusetts. 

Those practicing herbalism, healing, divination; those that were in touch with nature, the cycles of the moon, the seasons and the alignment of the planets retreated far from the townsfolk, to avoid being suspected and accused. Many retreated to the forests, some retreated to caves…

Some even caved to their fear and withdrew their own beliefs. 

It has been believed since Ancient Greece, that the 4 elements: Earth, Water, Air and Fire, make up all matter. The body is Earth and the soul is Fire. Water and Air allow the soul to exist within the body. The earth beneath our feet, the air in our lungs, the water we drink and the sun that brings warmth and light. The cohesion of the four elements cannot be denied as an important factor in the foundations of life. 

In makeshift1500s (a.k.a 2024 Renfaire); I will be installing my ancient & enchanted forest, filled with treasures to help guide others along their healing journey. Embracing the ‘woo-woo’ idea that crystals carry energy, that thought and intention carry power, and that individuality and uniqueness carry importance. 

Crystals for the crazies.

Divinatory items like Runes & Tarot. 

Random items like pendants, keychains and wall-hangings. 

Ancient symbols that carry power and importance to various cultures. 

Chalices, Mugs &  Cups - to connect you to the element of water.

Candlesticks & Cauldrons - to connect you to the element of fire.

Sage & Incense burners - to connect you to the element of air.

Jars & Planters - to connect you to the element of earth.

Ancient-inspired, created with nature.
