One of the Valar, Aulë created the Dwarves out of a desire to have someone he could teach his skills to. He delighted in craftsmanship and the substances out of which the earth was made. Aulë taught his skills to many of the Noldor. To the Dwarves, he was called Mahal. Some of Aulë's most famous works included the Two Lamps and the vessels in which the fruit and flower of Laurelin and Teleperion are contained to form the Sun and the Moon. He is married to Yavanna, and they dwell together in Valinor.
