The Moon Rattle is now glazed

Shamanic Moon RattleI glaze fired the moon rattle last week. Here it is sitting on the bag I made for carrying it. I sent it off to a dear friend who is an energy healer. I made the rattle specifically for her. She wanted it to symbolize the moon and the water, so I used a variety of homeopathic waters to bathe the carving and smooth out the lines. I think I found a new technique for my carvings. The method of smoothing the carved lines with water is known to probably every ceramic artist in the world, but now I am planning to implement it in my future pieces.
