Recently my husband and I had to make a quick trip to Washington, DC. Had to catch a quick bite with Barack and Michelle. ( : Well anyway, as usual I am always looking when I travel for new art to bring back home. To my delight, I found a new ceramic artist, J. Davis of J. Davis Studios. This artist had these amazing ceramic rattles made in the shape of hearts and balls. No these aren't baby rattles but adult rattles. They are called Inner Spirit Rattles. You Hold, Shake and Feel Better. Native Americans used rattles to ensure blessings upon their crops. Or according to J. Davis,use your rattle to help rattle some rain into your life, some rain out of your life , to help rattle your worries away or (if you insist ) just to keep your papers from blowing astray.
