  • Materials: hand formed ceramic clay rattle, semi precious and clay bead accents, gnarled wood handle

This 3" wide x 7" long crescent rattle is made from terra sigillata enhanced, texture impressed stoneware. After firing, it refused to rattle and was headed for the backyard recycle bin. But once it hit the soft earth, it was resurrected and rattled! I then adorned it with a branch found laying next to it (for the handle), glass tube beads, waxed linen, semi-precious stones and handmade clay beads. By the way, the Crescent shape is a log time accepted Goddess shape which could explain it's belligerent beginnings!

Ceremonial RATTLES have been used for centuries to celebrate beginnings. They were the gift of choice among Victorians wishing to commemorate the birth of a child but as far back as the humble Egyptians, rattles were utilized to memorialize each new chapter in the life of the individual.

The gourd Rattles made by the American Indian were filled with plants they raised & considered sacred - corn, tobacco, and rice. My fired clay Rattles are filled with dried bits of clay which I revere as the complete gestalt of life. These fired bits provide the sound of the earth as my Rattles are shaken or handled.

Both my Pillow and Crescent Rattles are “birthed” in the same way. Once the basic shape is formed, I tenderly blow my own CHI (breath of life) inside, sealing the opening quickly closed with pursed lips. These Rattles are then fired & finished with something as simple as a leather handle, semi-precious stones, clay, bone or shell beads or copper - details which complement the importance of the Rattle.

I've never used a cord like this but can't wait to make necklaces. The thickness is perfect for use with my handmade ceramic pendants. The design is interesting & I love the colors. Great service from a great shop!

I absolutely love the texture mats from this seller and own multiple designs. They are the best mats I have found to use with clay. The large size is an added bonus.
