Primal. Universal. Beloved.
The artist chose rattles to remind us of humankind’s resilience and global connection. Their unusual surface was inspired by a 16th century pottery firing technique invented by Japanese tea makers aspiring to give thanks for life’s inherent imperfections. Keep one close to soothe your worried soul when life seems anything but perfect.
Native Americans used rattles to bestow blessings upon their crops. Use your rattle to help rattle some rain into your life, some rain out of your life, to rattle your worries away, or (if you insist) just to keep your papers from blowing astray.

I have my Raku rattle next to my workspace and when I need to slow down or count my blessings, I pick it up and it gives me a great deal of pleasure and brings calm to my day.
The colors are fabulous, and the rattle is calming and meditative. Thank you for making such exquisite works of art.
I really love these rattles and the sentiments behind them. I am filled with gratitude for your creative spirit and these lovely rattles which make such meaningful gifts.
"My one and only favorite sister, Eileen, gave me one of your rattles for my 60th birthday! I absolutely love it. I have it on a table near my back door and when I leave in the morning I rattle it, and when I return home in the evening I do the same. It has become very very special."
"A friend gave me a heart rattle that your company makes. It is so beautiful. Thank you so much. I really love it. It is sitting on my desk and bringing a smile to my face!"
At first my assistant didn't quite "get" this rattle, now we can't get her to give it back! She loves it! Shaking brings about a sense of grounding and peace.
I have two and use them daily while day trading securities and intend to acquire more!! Great Work!!
