It is great for making brews (such as oils), incense-burning, and can be used to hold large, wide pillar candles. A fire is often lit within and the flames are leaped over as a simple fertility rite or at the end of a handfasting. If filled with water, this cauldron can be used for scrying.
Sweet little cauldron perfect for near the door
This is my first cauldron and I have already been using it on my Altar for offerings, and to hold items left outside under the light of the Full Moon. I'm considering trying it out as a Scrying Bowl as well. Because it's lightweight, I'm not sure how heat-resistant it would be, even filled with sand. But for my needs it's perfect.
