Runes: historical note of Elder Futhark runes and meanings

The first runes date back to the 1st century. According to historians and archeologists, the Elder Futhark alphabet is over 2000 years now. This runic script was widely used in northern territories of Europe that in our days known as Scandinavian countries, Iceland, Denmark and northern territories of Germany. While it was less common, in the other territories of Europe, including countries that are known as Eastern Europe, it also got a presence there and gave roots to the local variation of runic scripts. Thus, multiple runic artifacts have been found in Ukraine and several national signs might have been based on the runes considering their shapes and equal meanings with Elder Futhark.

The most famous users of runes were Vikings, who in our days know because of their great impact on modern civilization development. Vikings used runes for scripting. They actively engraved them on bodies, weapons, and of course, runes have been essential for magic and spiritual practices.

Elder Futhark alphabet contains 24 runes, where each rune has its own unique meaning and properties. For example, the Fehu rune has strong association with wealth, money, and matter. In old times, Fehu was linked to animal farms, which used to measure wealth. The next example is the Uruz rune. Nowadays and in ancient times the Uruz is associated with power, strength, and great health. And this could be easily continued for every rune of the Elder Futhark alphabet. While we would not go into the details of every rune, now you should have the general idea.

Another thing that looks interesting is that all runes are a combination of straight lines. This could be easily explained because in old times there were no proper writing tools, and when it takes to write something on rock or wood, it’s much easier to do with straight lines rather than with curves or oval shapes.

These days, Elder Futhark runes remain actual. Even though this script is old, it becomes even more powerful as people keep using it because of their deep meaning and powerful magical abilities that found usage in magical practices, divination, mantic, and spiritual sessions.

    How it's handmade?

    Handmade technology

    For Artglina it's very important to follow the ancient handmade eco friendly production technology that leads all the products to exceptional eye-catching design and quality resulted in lifelong product use. The technology that we strictly follow for all our products leads us to natural products as close as possible to original ancient pottery and can be represented by the following (5) five major steps:

    Step Description
    #1 Products are created and dried within 2 weeks.
    #2 Firing at 960°C (1760°F) degrees for 12 hours and as a result, row clay turns into a ceramic.
    #3 Glaze firing 920°C (1688°F) - 980°C (1796°F) that take from several hours to an entire day.
    #4 Milk firing at a temperature of 300°C (572°F). The natural milk moisture evaporates and the milky fat clogs the ceramic pores. This step takes one more day.
    #5 Gnosis coating (a mixture of linseed oil + beeswax) fixes the milky layer and adds contrast to the product. This is considered the final major step that requires one more day.

    The creation of each product is a complex process the contains a number of steps and requires between 3 - 5 weeks before the product gets finished and can be sent to the customer. All the ingredients and materials that we use for the creation of products are natural and eco friendly.
