Description

Tortoise Egg is a ceramic sculpture that is formed, painted, and glazed by hand. The solid stoneware edition varies in size and shape. The work is accompanied by a printed insert that reads: “Practice of patience / terrestrial harmony / among all living creatures.”

Tortoise Egg aims to cultivate viewers’ connection with nature and consideration of interspecies relationships. The small form, evoking what is yet to be born, encourages care now for what is to come. Universal and ancient as the site of anticipation, protection, and nourishment, the egg has numerous interpretations, stories, and histories from different cultures. It has many references to life and cannot escape its inherent fragility. This edition is meant to function as a reminder that all our everyday decisions impact the Earth’s natural environment.
