These wonderful ogham dice
are crafted in a similar way to the staves mentioned in the Irish myth of
Tochmarc Étaíne. In the story, a druid named Dalan
takes four "wands" of yew and carves the ogham symbols
upon them so that he may use them for divination.
Perfect for popping in
your pocket, these Ballymote
ogham dice are carved from ancestral Yew wood,
gathered from one of the many prehistoric barrows
scattered throughout ancient Wessex. They are pentagonal
in shape with the five symbols of an aicme inscribed
onto the spines. The four dice can be cast and the
uppermost ogham symbol read.
We work and play in the
ancient Celtic heartlands of Britain where the
Durotriges and Atrebates tribes ruled in prehistory.
Our Ballymote Ogham Dice are handcrafted ritual tools with
real Celtic soul, something with real spirit and as each
set is individually made, no two are ever the same.
