~ About the Hawthorn Collection ~
The beautiful, delicate blossoms of the Hawthorn trees that punctuate our hedgerows and fields in early summer, a wonderful display of scented, creamy-white flowers, each speckled with dark anthers. We collected the flowers, then cast them using the ancient method of lost wax casting to capture and replicate the beauty of each bloom, before finishing them with handcrafted anthers to give a truly authentic feel.
In Celtic mythology, the Hawthorn was one of, if not the, most likely tree to be inhabited of protected by the 'little people' (Mooinjer Veggey) or fairies. Its beautiful, delicate white blossoms are simple beautiful, and are believed to symbolise love, protection, beauty and balance.
