Ceramic Rattle

Our loves must rest peacefully within us

Quite simply these pieces are about loss.
My friend Mei made the small ceramic rattle for my daughter Bea when she was born in 2010. I finished it by painting the face on it. Mei died on Bea’s first birthday in 2011. I didn’t want to admit the rattle symbolised both birth and death. It has no ‘rattle’, makes no noise.
Unconsciously on the painful ending of a relationship I unconsciously made a shamanic type rattle myself with a bird’s body. Grief seems such an impossible state to negotiate. Art is one way, it’s been my main way of processing loss.
I see it, recognise it, and wholely respect both the pain and the process.
Our loves must rest peacefully within us.
