Hand-Crafted by talented Catawba Potter Eric Canty. This turtle effigy is made with pan clay. The piece is notched with a removable shell. This piece is a mottled color of reddish brown, tan, and black with the signature Catawba glossy look. The base of the vessel is signed and dated by the artist. This is a handcrafted item constructed using traditional Catawba methods. Expect some imperfections and micro-fissures to be present. This does not lower the value of the item. The item is for decorative purposes only.
