Chile Back Turtle
Each turtle is handcrafted and Handpainted by Mary Miller of Whispering Prairies Ceramics in Truth or Consequences, NM. Each is around 4" by 2" in size.
Miller is a ceramist and is completely self-taught. "My work isn't done in traditional ways and techniques," said Miller. The artist strives to maintain her own individualism in creating her ceramics. This affords a "visual signature"- while viewing her work, one recognizes the artist even before seeing the signature. Each ceramic turtle is truly one of a kind; the bottom may be painted in black or dark green.
