2 Phallic Rattles Michael Biello 1978 Spacecraft Ceramic Art Sculpture Vintage
These 2 phallic rattles were made by Michael Biello, aka Spacecraft, Philadelphia, PA. We purchased them directly from him in 1977 when we were both showing our work at the very first Philadelphia Museum of Art Craft Show held that year. They are white ceramic with gold lustre stars. The clay bits fired inside the forms rattle when you shake them. Some of the gold has worn off as they have often been picked up and shaken over the past 40 years. Each one is 4.75" long end to end. In very good condition with the one exception noted.
A little info about Michael Biello: He is a multidisciplinary artist whose work has been exhibited internationally. He graduated from the Philadelphia College of Art in 1973 with a BFA in Ceramics. He opened Spacecraft Ð a storefront studio/showroom near, and later on, South Street in Philly. He has continued to create and show his work in Noho New York (1989 Ð 1996) and Old City Philadelphia (1996 Ð present).
