Tiny Turtle Figurine
A small, colorful turtle with a flower decorated shell. Each of these animals is wheel thrown, hand sculpted, and detailed with real gold luster.
I began Chelonia Ceramics in 2017 in the corner of a repurposed mechanics garage in Austin, Texas. My work began as and remains an ever-evolving line of thoughtfully and precisely handcrafted ceramic wares for the home. I create each piece myself on the pottery wheel in my home studio, now in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Because quality remains a top priority in my practice, I make work in time-intensive small batches and test continuously for structural integrity, functionality, and consistency. I lean towards a minimalist aesthetic, but I also love a beautiful, bright color palette and carefully placed details to accentuate my designs.
