In Myth, Lore and Legend, the Cauldron has been a symbol of Transformation, Abundance, Femine Power, Healing, Regeneration and more.
The cauldron began to represent the Goddess, the Sacred Divine, and a vessel for transformation. In Welsh legend, Crone Goddess Cerridwen with the powers of prophesy, is the keeper of the cauldron of knowledge and inspiration in the Underworld.
In the Mythological Cycle of early Irish literature, the Cauldron is one of the Four Magical Treasures of the Tuatha Dé Danann which the mythological Tuatha Dé Danann are supposed to have brought with them from the Four Legendary island cities Murias, Falias, Gorias and Findias, when they arrived in Ireland.
There are many references to mystical uses of this tool. Modern day practitioners use cast iron cauldrons to burn the sacred woods, among other things, and these small carefully handcrafted tri-footed "gun-metal" colored stoneware altar cauldrons are suitable for holding sacred objects, holding tea lights and votive candles. Also, these collectible altar cauldrons may be filled with sand or salt and used as thuribles for burning granular resin or powdered incense on instant lite charcoal disks.
Created on a potter's wheel, these are excellent for home, temple or office use and suitable for ritual...While supplies last.
