Description

A 4" wide by 3 1/2" high stoneware U-shaped rattle has been accented with terra sigillata and glazed in a nutmeg matte glaze. Then twenty strands of wax linen were suspended across the bottom to hold Toho seed bead interspersed between wood, scroddled clay, pod, coin & horn beads adding another 5" to the overall height of this delightful rattle.

The finished rattle measures 4" X 8 1/2" long. Code # BH 570.

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.

Many cultures believe in Healing RATTLES and their capacity to dispel illness & dis-ease. These Rattles are credited with being able to awaken the human spirit, drive out negative energies and center personal focus. My versions of these Rattles are hand formed and adorned with symbols of wellness; they are shaped to be grasped. During times of despair, medical treatments or loneliness, the Rattle should be gently shaken to the beat of one’s heart. RATTLES do help us to ground; their sound is powerful & magical, producing an incomparable energy all their own.

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.

All of my 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.

Additional policies

WHOLESALE ORDERS - Please contact me, Barbara Hanselman at BHClaysmith@gmail.com to arrange wholesale purchases.

INTAGLIO FLEXIBLE STAMP MATS ANGEL POLICY
This Angel Policy is a form of limited license that specifies how the stamped images made from my INTAGLIO flexible rubber stamp mats can be used. It also lists all BHClaysmith requirements regarding the uses of Intaglio flexible rubber stamp mats. Typically this outlines under what circumstances, a user can make and sell items created using the Intaglio stamps of BHClaysmith.

BHClaysmith has a very generous Angel Policy, which allows users to work with the stamped images without restriction and this includes creating products for resale.  
BHClaysmith does NOT work on the basis that Intaglio rubber stamps are being sold for personal use only. But we do require that any items that are created for resale must be hand stamped and not reproduced mechanically or electronically and we also prohibit the use of assembly or production line processes to create stamped products.
Stamped images made from BHClaysmith INTAGLIO rubber stamp mats CANNOT be used to create logos, clip art or for other commercial use however there is -
1. No limitation on how many products can be made with an Intaglio mat
2.No parameters on where the products can be sold
3.No required copyright statement to post
4.No written permission needs to be requested and issued to the user

This might all sound pretty daunting to a user who is unfamiliar with Angel Policies – however the terms of a policy are not meant to be restrictive or prohibitive. They are simply to protect the original artist, the stamp manufacturer and the stamper from the misuse of stamped images.
