Description

With fine sculpting and appealing smiles, it is easy to see why Randy’s turtles are collected and cherished, world-wide

It makes sense, then, that he creates prize-winning turtle storytellers with the pottery technique of his adopted state, that he adapted to his circumstances.

His adorably amiable turtles are made by hand, of commercial clay, and then fired in an oil can, with wood fuel.

Their shells are segmented and textured, with the babies’ little tails curled up, behind.

Grampa’s shell is modeled and knobbly; his head has emerged from a fleshy collar, and his body has a hammered texture, to denote leathery turtle skin. His breastplate is also clearly shown.

The little turtles seem wholly wrapped up in the tale, wide-eyed and clinging to Grampa’s flipper and shell.

With fine sculpting and appealing smiles, it is easy to see why Randy’s turtles are collected and cherished, world-wide
