Flaming Fireside Broom
Handmade with
Red Rust Broomcorn

The flaming red rust color turkey wing style whisk brooms are hand made; measuring approximately 14 inches long and weighing about 1 pound. This is a strong broom to use in home and hearth to clean mortar joints in brick and stone; to use in the kitchen; around wood stoves; your workshop; while camping and for use in ceremonies and rituals. Our personal all time favorite use is whisking out the vehicle - works sometimes better and faster than a vacuum!

The association between witches and brooms goes back to ancient times. The pagan community would come together for ceremonies to ensure healthy crops. During the ritual they would mount pitchforks, poles, and brooms; and ride them like horses into the fields, leaping high into the air and dancing. During medieval times brooms were a symbol of female domesticity. Since most witches were female, the broom became intrinsically linked with Witches. In modern times, brooms are reminders of the power and unlimited possibilities of the Wiccan path.

  • The broom sticks are harvested, sustainably, in Oregon with a local restoration program. The sticks then go into a kiln for drying. A band saw is used in a very unusual, creative way to shapes and sculpt your broom stick... many times you will see a wood spirit peering.
  • The best 100% broomcorn called "hurl" is used in creating each broom. The broomcorn is hand-dyed with non toxic dyes which are stable and when used under normal circumstances will not bleed.
  • A broom winder, from an original machine in the 1800's is used to apply the broomcorn to the stick. Then a post Civil War era boom vice is used to flatten and sew the broomcorn. From the vice, the brooms go to the "Kick Winder" where platting the broom stalks is done. Once the broom is finished, it goes to the "cropper", another 1800's tool, to be trimmed to the desired shape, whether rounded, straight or angled.
  • Each is hand-made and will vary slightly in size, color and weight.

This is the most beautiful hand broom I’m so happy with my purchase. Beautifully handcrafted with such care. I love the natural texture of the bristles and the colour is more beautiful than I had expected. The price is great- for me it was more cost effective to purchase the hand broom from 13 moons because of the free shipping on orders of $100+. Ordering directly from the artist on Etsy was more expensive. The broom was carefully wrapped and showed up in perfect condition despite being shipped together with a cast iron cauldron!
