“I was looking for something just truly unique on our trip and stopped in an art gallery in the Denver airport and found your artwork. 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.” ~Anne
innerSpirit Rattles stand for simplicity and survival.
Prehistoric rattles reinforce humanity’s shared heritage. The early rhythm makers are found in archaeological digs in even the most remote places on earth, and have significant cultural and historical importance. Handcrafted from inventive materials by resourceful peoples, the artifacts are testament to the resilience of the human spirit.
J. Davis Studio’s sweet little bibelots are first shaped in clay, then drenched with an iridescent Raku glaze that creates perfectly imperfect swirls of coppery plums, reds, blues, ochres, and greens. Pick your rattle up from its nestling spot on a desk or vanity, and the tiny balls tucked inside make a soft soothing sound. No two look or sound alike.
Exploring a display of innerSpirit Rattles is an interactive and musical experience that often pulls others into fun and lively conversations. The wabi-sabi inspired Raku firing process creates a one-of-a-kind asymmetrical surface, and each innerSpirit Rattle has its own unique sound as well. People love turning the rattles over and over, one-by-one while shaking them until they find the one that “speaks to them.”
“I photocopied the wonderful page which you send that tells the story of Gratitude and give it to our customers who purchase the rattles. They even ask for a copy to enclose with a gift purchase. Good job.” ~Cynthia
