Aggie is known for her appealing, small figure vignettes of children and animals.
This charming piece is a fine example of her style, with an additional touch – the “children” are turtles.
It is virtually impossible not to smile at the winsome little turtles, snuggling up to Mama.
The baby, with head turned, is about to give its mother a kiss, is seems, while the bigger baby turtle smiles as it leans into Mom.
A lovely butterfly is hovering above Mama turtle’s back, in three-dimensions.
This is hand made of all natural Acoma clay, known for its pure white color.
The good-luck, black rain designs are painted with steeped wild spinach leaves, mixed with water.
The russet is another, natural, clay slip color.
Adorable, but made with expertise and traditional techniques, this turtle family will be a delightful addition to yours.
