Our small ceramics studio is located in Far West Texas. We are close to Big Bend National Park, an isolated and rugged area in the middle of the vast and peaceful Chihuahuan Desert.
There is arguably a unique energy springing from our under populated and far flung part of the world. The desolate mountainous landscape has a curious way of reinforcing faith, dredging up an unknown inner strength, and sparking a deep appreciation of even the smallest things in life.
This feeling is a gift that maybe (just maybe) is captured inside the thin shell of each handmade innerSpirit Rattle. Perhaps it’s an aura that seeps in, or a sticky essence picked up while being made one-by-one in a land once inhabited by American Indians and the Buffalo soldiers.
Shaking this innerSpirit Rattle will produce a calming sense of peace and help keep you focused and mindful of the present moment. Use to rattle your worries away, or just to keep your papers from blowing away.
If none of the above can convince you of the energy the Big Bend area has to impart, consider the mysterious orbs of light that skip and dance along the plains of our neighboring, Marfa, Texas. For over a hundred years, try as they might, scientists still can’t explain them.
