Carol Gentithes and Blaine Avery - Gala Auction Collaboration

Turtle at the Lake Hole
11" x 11" x 18"

2009 Collaborations are underway for the Friday night auction.
This zealous turtle was created by Blaine Avery and decorated by Carol Gentithes. Blaine admires the introspective, thoughtful nature of the turtle who is forever the independent, intrepid nomad carrying his home on his back through the journeys of life. Carol narrates one of the turtle's journeys as he wanders into the waters of a lake where he discovers traces of human interference from the land above. The turtle is hand built from stoneware and salt glazed. The decorations are silkscreen emulsions that are fired onto the surface in a separate firing.

The Celebration Gala takes place the evening of November 20th from 6-9. This is your opportunity to browse and shop the booths before the marketplace opens Saturday morning. We will feature a delicious spread of heavy hors d'oeuvres, wine, beer and assorted beverages. A live band will be performing and the popular Seagrove Collaborative Pieces auction will take place. Artists from different potteries will work together to make one of a kind pieces, all created here in Seagrove!
Tickets ($35.00) can be purchased on-line or by mail.
