The Green Wolf


Be aware that this Tumblr frequently includes pictures of art made with animal remains, as well as occasional liberal political ideologies. Mostly it's nature photography and art (and not just of charismatic megafauna).

Artist, author, ecopagan, and wannabe polymath living in the Pacific Northwe(s)t.

Creator of Curious Gallery, a two-day arts festival celebrating the wunderkammer revival in Portland, OR on February 1-2, 2014. Details at http://www.curiousgallerypdx.com.

I discovered neopaganism in the mid-1990s, and shortly thereafter began my work with animal totems and neoshamanism. Over the years I've wandered through various paths, ranging from Wicca-flavored neopaganism to Chaos magic, and for several few years I created (and followed) Therioshamanism, a post-industrial neo-shamanic path. These days I've relaxed into a more integrated ecopaganism, less about rituals and journeying, and more about the sacred in every moment.

I've also been creating various neopagan ritual tools and other sacred art from hides, bones, beads and other such things since about the same time. And I've written several nonfiction books on totemism, animal magic, and related topics. My next book is "Plant and Fungus Totems: Connect With Spirits of Field, Forest and Garden", due out from Llewellyn in May 2014.

Ask me anything

In addition to the belt loop tails and carabiner tails I listed last night on Etsy, I also listed two more elaborate tail sets—the first is one of my belt pouch sets with a BEAUTIFUL crystal fox tail, and the other is one of the Maiden, Mother, Crone triple tail sets I make every so often just because I love the design so much! All in all, I listed around five dozen tails yesterday and last night—some are already selling, so now’s a good time to go to my Etsy and get the best selection :)

So when I posted this tail last week to http://fav.me/d4tht43, I had a request to make it into something custom. So here it is! I put the tail on a braided leather belt with a matched pair of belt pouches with antler clasps, all made from assorted brown leathers from various old coats and skirts. I deliberately mixed up the colors just for the fun of it, and to match the rainbow of colors in the tail itself. 
This set is already spoken for, but if you’d like something similar, just message me—I am open for custom work!
