This key is inspired by the alchemical symbol for crucible. The crucible is an instrument of alchemy and metallurgy. It is a vessel in which materials are heated and rendered down. This is a vital part of the alchemical process. A 'crucible' can also refer to any trial or difficult process that transforms us for the better.
Here we continue to celebrate our fascination with keys, mysteries, puzzles, and the alchemical processes of the inner world. Set in the base of the key is a painted Iris ember.
Hand-crafted in the USA in solid bronze, oxidized to a rustic finish.
