This adorable turtle is a constant favourite and perfect for anyone who loves turtles and is based on a family of very shy turtles who live in my favourite Centennial Park pond. If you’re quiet and patient you’ll see them pop up for a look see and air, but if they spy you they’re off!
Made from our finest porcelain, Southern Ice Porcelain, using traditional handcrafted techniques to assure quality and made in my little coastal studio. You can select from a range of colours to best suit you and your treasured turtle.
Originality, authenticity and love of the materials and subjects drives my creative work.
If you like something that is exactly the same as the next one, this is not for you. On the other hand, if you value quality artisan designs that are tactile, beautiful and unusual you’ll love these treasures.
Each turtle is unique, giving you something special and captivating. Made in an artisan process over a series of weeks in a sunny coastal studio with multiple kiln firings, each turtle is different and reflects its handmade origins.
The turtle is part of my series of much loved treasures that make daily life rich and rewarding, including bunnies, dogs, tea pots, hearts, cloud watching, cats and peace birds.
Our designs come in a range of colour ways and patterns so a selection is shown with each product. If you would like more details on the variations of each colour and pattern please see our Colour Options.
My work is handmade by me using natural materials so there will always be variations. You’ll probably find colour variations too as how a computer screen decides to show a colour and how it is in real life can vary. I wish I could control that side of things but I’m a mere human artisan. But I’m thinking that if you like the handmade and shopping online you know about these kind of differences already. Thank you for your understanding and for choosing to shop with a little person, it makes the world of difference.
