Greetings and good health!
With faire season nigh two months hence, we at Renniewoods are working tirelessly to ensure our faire wares are in tip top shape. This entails dragging old dark and dreary outside, finished staffs in one hand, camera in the other.
To the left is our featured piece of the week. As a water-aligned mage, the natural waves in this black birch inspired Valos to incorporate a bit of the sea into his design. After a fruitful walk along a deserted beach on a biting winter day, we had just the elements we needed for decorating the intricate staff head.
Fiery coral seems to grow out of nooks and crannies in the curvy staff head, while seashells rest along gentle slopes. Even the body has been sanded and coated to a smooth, glossy sheen, giving one the impression of gliding their hand over a water-slick surface. Though I am undeniably earthbound (as if being an herbalist didn't give it away), I fear I may be sad to see this piece go once some lucky faire-goer decides to take it home.
We have a lineup of several other finished staves, though you fine folks will need to come back next week for another peek.
Fare thee well,
