Hand crafted by Michelle Van Fleet these stunning faery seats are created using crystals, copper and natural elements. Michelle’s experiences as an artist and shaman have culminated in these unique artworks which act as portal to the faerie realm, bringing their own specific energies and inviting the faerie or deva to live in harmony with the seat’s human caretaker. Speaking about her work, Michelle says “These works are my gesture to the realm of faery and the world of human, that we may receive and imbibe the sacred knowledge of nature, healing our souls and uplifting our hearts in the doing. The open chair is an ancient symbol of welcoming hospitality for the honored guest, and these pieces are just that.”Filed under Sculpture, Spirituality | Comments (2)

Emily Carding, previously a Featured Artist here on Fae Nation, is something of a genius when it comes to tarot. Her innovative Transparent Tarot, based on the traditional system, was released in 2008 to high acclaim. Now Emily has created the Transparent Oracle, a deck of 70 transparent circular cards which comes with 128 page companion guidebook and a white reading cloth. The Oracle is arranged in 7 sets of ten cards, each representing the 7 directions (east, south, west, north, above, below & within). Within each direction there are cards to represent a season, weather, element, time of day, landscape, guides and elementals (for the 4 compass directions) or aspects such as the planets and senses (in the remaining 3 directions). The deck’s symbolism will be familiar to anyone with a passing interest in folklore, Shamanism, astrology and ceremonial magick – however, that in no way means you need be an expert in any of those things to get a lot from this oracle! The symbols and images are simple and so clear that they can be understood immediately on an intuitive level by virtually anyone.
Aside from this wonderful simplicity, the beauty of this deck comes in the way the cards work together to paint a picture. When the individual cards are laid one on top of another, new and exciting images are born which uncover even greater depth and meaning. The splendid guidebook suggests several ways in which to use the cards, going beyond the usual divination. I’m particularly intrigued with the idea of using the cards to inform storytelling.
My one very small issue is the size of the cards, which I found a little too big to shuffle comfortably (but this could well be my small hands which are to blame!). But otherwise, this is an extremely fascinating oracle system and one I can see myself turning to frequently in the future.
