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.
