Suenomatsuyama nami mo koenamu.
A female voice, solicitous and sweet. Distantly, the brain stem screeched, stress hormones wailing at my motor system, demanding I run, run now, escape into the sanctuary of multiplicity, disappear nto the waiting herd, do anything so long as I remove myself from probable harm, anything just go, go now.
— Nothing But Blackened Teeth, Cassandra Khaw
A thing pulled from the fire. The ohaguro-bettari, cast in solid sterling silver and oxidized. Made in collaboration with Cassandra Khaw, based on their novella Nothing But Blackened Teeth.
Made by hand in our Montreal studio, available in sterling silver. Read about the collaboration on Tor Nightfire's blog.
