Cotton Mural - Clementine Hunter
Dimensions: 24" x 8" x 2"
Clementine Hunter depicts the horse drawn wagon hauling cotton from the fields to the gin as it was done for hundreds of years before tractors were used. Here you see the cotton pickers, the horse drawn wagon, the cotton being bailed and the cotton gin all in the same narrative scene. Clementine Hunter lived and worked on Melrose Plantation, one of the largest cotton farms in Louisiana. Each ceramic is hand-painterd and no two are exactly alike. Each piece has its own distinctive shape whose textured surface allows you to feel the passion in her work.
