Turtle Art

 

Turtle Art is very special here at Turtle Rock Studio.  Turtles are ancient creatures with many stories and spells to share.  web-turtle-charms-3
 web-tc-balance-copy These turtle charms are slip cast porcelain.
I made this turtle smooth and simple so I
can decorate each one individually.The yin and yang is the ancient symbol
for balance.
 The spiral is a universal description for  transformation, be it spiritual or material changes, life always spirals around back to itself.  These turtles seem to say, “slow and steady wins the race”.  web-3-turtle-spiral

turtle heart dancers charm I designed
and created.  Learn more about the
process of pouring a plaster mold
in my blog.
 I also made a mold for this fun 2 sided “pot belly” turtle mug.  web-turtle-mugs-close-up
 Once the mold is cast about 50 times it becomes worn and must be retired.  Here are the last casting of my first ever turtle mug.

 Turtles are always emerging out of the clay and glazes here at turtle rock studio.  A constant reminder that good things come to those who wait.  web-turtle-close-up
