Clementine Hunter Mango Wood Serving Platter - Pecan Picking
Hand-crafted mango wood serving pieces featuring the artwork of Clementine Hunter. Handcrafted enamel on rich mango wood.
Clementine Hunter depicts the hard work of hand picking rows of cotton on Melrose Plantation in central Louisiana. Clementine Hunter's paintings are a visual history of singular events of plantation life. The plantation had large pecan orchards, and in this scene Clementine captured the work of threshing the trees and picking up the pecans that fell from the trees. Clementine depicts a teenager hanging upside down to shake the trees so the pecans could fall to the ground for the ladies to pick up and place in their buckets.
Clementine Hunter lived and worked on Melrose Plantation, one of the largest cotton farms in Louisiana. Each ceramic is hand-painted 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. Gitter Gallery has assembled the best artisans to recreate the memories of the things Clementine Hunter loved and observed during her life on the Melrose Plantation.
