Speedy delivery. My sisters-in-law needed some good energy felt daily while keeping her mother at peace while fighting a losing battle with cancer. She felt comfort just holding the little spirit in her hand. Thank you

Just look at that face - how could I resist. And so exquisitely made. Beautiful. And it is a musical instrument. Well done

This item is scary, so don't gift it to children who could dream about it in a bad way. The use of this is good, but some of the faces are haunting!

Handmade ceramic figures by artist, Jon Baring-Gould. Each palm-sized shaker has a distinctly expressive face.

Spirit Shakers

It’s hard to explain the appeal of these figures, which are filled with a mysterious (and melodious) substance. But they have a way of becoming just what you need them to be: a charming palm rattle and calming influence when your mind is racing. or a source of good spirits when you need a lift.

The Maker is Jon Baring-Gould, who makes these ceramic shakers by hand. Each one has a distinctly expressive face. With just a few deft impressions and cuts in the clay, Jon creates a personality for each palm-sized shaker.

An artist and educator, Jon has been making Spirit Shakers for about a decade. He was inspired by a spirit gourd he received as a gift from a witch many years ago. If you’re feeling contemplative, want to make some tickling music, or want to encourage some happy thoughts, why not let Jon’s Spirit Shakers move you? They also make a great gift for someone who could use a bit of cheer or to celebrate any happy occasion. more Their Story
