Cauldrons are large metal pots traditionally used for cooking and boiling over open fires and for making soap. They have largely fallen out of use for cooking in developed countries. They are now mainly used by Pagan and Wiccans as magikal tools in ritual use.
Symbolic of the Goddess they are feminine and associated with the West and the element of water. Commonly made of , cast iron, they can be used to burn incense, making black salt, mixing herbs, or to burn paper with words of power written on them.
Other associations are Leprechauns and their pot of gold, ‘The Holy Grail’ or Arthurian legend, rebirth, the Goddess and the womb.
Our cauldrons are cast in China and India in small factories and sometimes include small blemishes or imperfections.
