This handmade baby rattle is the perfect Irish baby gift. Made with timber harvested from a windfall Beech. Each rattle is unique and handcrafted by me here in County Sligo. Ireland. The timber shows signs of spalting which is a pattern created during the decay of the tree. I fill the rattles with dried peas. When shaken there is a satisfying ” rattle” as the walls are turned to within 3mm. These rattles are a wonderful Irish keepsake. 100% natural and finished with a natural oil. Each rattle also comes in a lovely presentation box. These rattles make a lovely baby shower gift, early years birthday or christening gift.
Made to order. Photos are an example only. The rattle you will receive will be very similar in colour and grain and will be equally beautiful.
Made in Ireland.
About Cuando Creator
Matt Jones, the acclaimed wood turner artist, designs beautiful handmade wooden items for the
home. Matt only uses ethically sourced Irish wood such as fallen beech, walnut, ash and oak trees
to make his collection of handmade salad bowls, salt mills, pepper grinders, commissioned items
and sculptural art pieces. He works from his workshop based in County Sligo, the West of Ireland
surrounded by hills, woods and the wild Atlantic sea. This dramatic landscape plays a major part in
“I am fascinated by trees. They are among the most complex natural structures on earth. As a
woodturner I am equally fascinated by the material of trees; wood. Wood is flexible, breathable
and of infinite use to humans. In fact the history of mankind is intrinsically linked to the tree. In
early human societies the tree provided food, shelter and heat. The earliest vessels were made of
wood. It is this form that I choose as my subject.”
