Materia Prima: An Expression of Matter

57.84

An elemental oracle

And so it is, all things in life are collective. Nature is inescapably cooperative. We share with the stars, the clouds, the bees, and each other the same elements that created the complex world we live in. This cooperative endeavour forms life and is the bewitching mystery of the periodic table – the Materia Prima of our unified existence.

This powerful message of unification that circles throughout the Table of Elements inspired USSI to create ‘Materia Prima: An Expression of Matter.’ This deck is an expression of the periodic table concentrated in 84 cards. Each chosen element is given its part in the cosmic drama of Life, conjuring matter in the soulful, playful language of the imagination.

Printed on a luxurious, heavy playing card stock, inside a richly embossed and intricately foiled tuck box, this deck is a handsome companion for your meditative, daily oracle ritual, or tarot practice.

We would strongly recommend purchasing the separate companion guide to this deck, which explains the discovery of each element and its connection to life’s nature. View guide >>

“What if we thought of the elements – all the matter of this world – as one of us? Cavorting hybrids – part human and part granular, atomic expression – that captures our mind and body as well as our heart. What if we looked at all matter using our souls. Could we still speak with straight forward authority about it? Would science listen? We think it would not only listen but tell us frankly, it is time.”
Excerpt from the introduction of “Materia Prima: A Reflection On Matter.” An Uusi Publication.

Created by the talented people of UUSI studio and the creators of the Pagan Other Worlds Tarot and Supra Oracle this new card deck and companion guide were chosen for the prestigious MIT Libraries’ Distinctive Collections. Their deluxe print and profoundly insightful work will make this an heirloom object of the future.


Tarot is having a moment. And with more artists than ever bringing forth new versions of the classic Tarot, it’s never been easier to unleash your inner reader and find a deck that sings to you! Whether you’re a witchy mama looking for something a little more macabre, or a Kundalini goddess in search of some high vibes, there is a deck out there with your name on it.

We at HOF make it our mission to curate the most simplistic yet rich, odd but captivating, and 100% far-out awesomeness indie Tarot, Oracle, Healing and Meditation Decks out there.

So-called indie decks are designed by independent illustrators and designers. The decks are produced in small batches and a great deal of attention is paid to the quality of the paper, print & boxes. This makes the price point often higher than cards offered by a large publisher. Often they are funded through crowdfunding and we at HOF back these makers with respect & pre-orders. We love supporting entrepreneurs, makers, designers, illustrators and soul sisters on their journey.
