Pictograph Turtle Raku w/Crackle Design
Artisan: Ben Diller Maui Hawaii
Sea Turtles are hand-thrown Raku art pottery. No two are alike and vary in size. Each Raku art piece is fired in an outdoor kiln and left to smolder in a pit with wood shavings. Not everyone survives their trial by fire. The ones that do, cultivate strength and beauty.
While the Loggerhead Sea Turtle is more abundant along the east coast and nest at Tybee Island down along the Golden Isles into Florida, they are also known to hang out in Hawaii. Much like us, they love the beautiful Hawaii Islands.
