Snurtle Snurtle Snurtle


Artist: Lianne Johnson


3 x 4 x 5" / Ceramic   Is it a Turtle or a Snail? It’s a Snurtle! Stoneware clay is swirled and textured to fashion a snail shell. The addition of turtle legs, tail and head complete the chimera. A fine slip is burnished all over before firing. A second firing takes place in an earthen pit, where straw, cornhusks, salt, wood, seaweed, etc. act as colorants in a low-fire process. The result is a collage of wonderful white, gray, peach, burgundy, and black.
