Hatching Turtle (Swimming) #619

Hatching Turtle, Menagerie -  artwork by Emily Miller
A tiny sea turtle makes its way out of the egg, towards the open sea. Each turtle is unique, although there are three basic varieties: hatching from the egg, swimming (with no egg), and an albino white variant of the swimmer.

100 Turtles Project

In July 2018, I sculpted 100 unique ceramic and porcelain sea turtle hatchlings to represent the 99% of hatchlings that are now born female at major nesting sites, due to rising sand temperatures during incubation.

The 100 Turtles Project was unveiled at Fairweather Gallery in Seaside, Oregon. 25% of profits from all turtle sales through July 31 supported SeaLegacy's ocean conservation efforts.
