“More than anything, it was alchemy that intrigued me; the research of the invisible rules that govern macrocosm and microcosm, the secrets of the transformation of matter.
In hindsight, I realised that, conversely from what one might think, my interest
hadn’t been sparked by my father’s work, but rather by my observation of the
craftsmen and workers in town. I’d seen them turn clay into vases, sand into glass, grapes into vine, flour into bread, and I had been mesmerised.”

Fun fact, my best friend posed for this piece:)

Hertha's story will be featured among those of other wise women in my upcoming A Compendium of Witches, a project supported by my amazing Patreon community
The Kickstarter launch will be on the eve of Samhain (30th of October).

Apparently in Scotland there was a witch pricker (one of the investigators who stuck needles in suspected witches) who turned out to be a woman disguised as a man.
