Collection: November 2023: The Firetender

In November 2023, subscribers met the Firetender.

The Firetender is the oldest and wisest of the Foxes. She teaches the young ones how to read meaning in sparks, flame, and smoke; and how to make meaning with the ashes left behind. The Foxes practice a type of herbal alchemy. The Firetender sets bundles of herbs and twigs alight, then uses them to draw glyphs in the air.

Fire kills and fire quickens. The most sacred fire is fed with fallen cedar wood, which signifies both continuity and transition: passing from one phase to another; moving from one plane to another. The Firetender burns it at moments of difficult change, as the scent of cedar smoke evokes nostalgia and can bring comfort to those who mourn. Memories quicken the embers and ashes.

The Firetender Box includes an abundance of beautiful objects; hints and additions to expand the story; a mysterious document; and a lore card.
