TOOLS OF THE
an exhibit in metals
The ancient Hebrew mystical correspondence system of the Kabbalah has been esoterically interpreted and illustrated in many ways throughout the centuries. My work in metals and jewelry led me to an affinity with the visual properties of its symbolic weaponry.
The exhibit served several purposes. First and foremost is was a personal attempt at the production of tools for magickal purposes as an initiate of the Ordo Templi Orientis, (a para-Masonic fraternal/sororal group exploring the mystical paths of the poet/mage Aleister Crowley) as well as the completion of a master’s degree in Fine Art Jewelry and Metalsmithing.

Most of the tools have been constructed from correspondence tables of Aleister Crowley’s "777 and Other Qabalistic Writings."
