Brittany Waters Is studying to receive her BFA in the Sculpting program. Brittany Waters said she’s good with ceramics but is more of a sculpture. Originally Brittany lived in Sacramento but moved closer to the beach after that she fell in love with the beach life.
Waters created each turtle by carefully sculpting them and then firing them in the kiln. After that she pulled them out and carefully positioned them trying not to break any. The turtles are very detailed and took around two to three hours to make.
Brittany created this piece because of her vast love of the beach. She said she really loved nature and that her piece was created to show people how beautiful nature can be. I really enjoyed this piece because I can definitely agree that more people should get out more and experience nature. I also really enjoyed this piece because turtles are one of my favorite animals. growing up I had multiple ones and I currently have a tortoise. All in all this piece was simply flat out awesome.
