Cerridwen (keeper of the cauldron of knowledge) the crone aspect of the Welsh Triple Goddess. Often associated with witches and magick as well as nature, death, inspiration, astrology, herbs, science, poetry, spells, knowledge.
She is wisdom and inspiration, death and transformation. Honour her when seeking great changes.
This piece was inspired by a request from a priestess of Kernow and by the poetry of Sean Mychael Rice and is featured in the ‘Duelling Dragons’ book of poems and art exploring the ancient tales of our European pagan past.
“Beyond the land, beyond the sea,
Beneath the silver moon,
Ceridwen stirred her cauldron
With a dragon-headed spoon.“
Cerridwen and Gion – Sean Mychael Rice
RIP February 2024 Elayne Bines
This piece was commissioned by a wonderful wise woman and Priestess of Kernow. She was delving into the mysteries of Cerridwen at the time and throughout the creative process she aided me with insights, nuggets of wisdom and magick which I weaved into the image, as a result this piece holds as much of her as me and the goddess.
I dedicate this piece to Elayne Bines, wise woman, witch, mentor and friend. I will forever be grateful to have met you and learn from you, may you return to the arms of the goddess and rest well. Until we meet again 💚🙏💚
