These wonderful ogham dice are crafted in a similar way to the staves mentioned in the Irish myth of Tochmarc Étaíne. In the story, a druid named Dalan takes four "wands" of yew and carves the ogham symbols upon them so that he may use them for divination.
Perfect for popping in your pocket, these Ballymote ogham dice are carved from yew wood. They are pentagonal in shape with the five symbols of an aicme inscribed onto the spines. The four dice can be cast and the uppermost ogham symbol read.
The photos show previously crafted sets so there will be slight variations in the natural wood colour and markings, though that's part of the beauty of handmade pieces :-)
Two sets are available at the time of listing
The wood is windfallen yew wood from a still-living tree. The tree has been growing for around a thousand years, dating back to the Saxon Age, and feels full of positive energies. The pieces contain interesting markings and a range of beautiful colours.
We work and play in the ancient Celtic heartlands of Britain where the Durotriges and Atrebates tribes ruled in prehistory. Our Ballymote Ogham Dice are handcrafted ritual tools with real Celtic soul, something with real spirit and as each set is individually made, no two are ever the same.
