STORY

 

Gridarvor name comes from Norse mythology. It was a staff carved from an immense piece of amber, shaped into the form of a branch bursting with life. Sunlight reflected of its golden frame was cleansing the world. The staff was owned by Grid, a giantess and one of Odin’s wifes. She offered to lend the staff to the god Thor, so he could be able to kill the giant Geirröd.

 

I found this large branch next to the Pig’s cave, underneath The Royal Sheepfold, above the Prahova Valley. It was piled together with some other branches as if someone had stack them there, although I really doubt that, since those parts of the forest are quite wild. The forest was full of little blue and white flowers, making the ground leaf cover look quite like a magic carpet. As I carried the branch with me, on my shoulder, it was banging and catching many other branches from the standing trees alongside the path, as if it wanted to salute everyone and get in touch with them.

CRAFTING PROCESS

This fragment was not cut from a living tree. It was found lying on the ground.

This piece of wood needed peeling, cleaning, washing, brushing and sanding.

It was also treated against harmful insects, pests and mold.

A large piece of poplar tree was used for the base, which was found in a park in Bucharest, after a huge poplar was cut. It was kept 1 year to dry up.
