We are pleased to offer this turtle sculpture handmade by Robert Bliss who finds inspiration from the ocean and its shore.
He sculpts the original work in clay, makes a mold, hand presses the tiles, and lets them dry thoroughly before firing. After the bisque firing he and his wife, Karen, glaze the tiles and then they are fired a second time which brings out the beautiful, glossy, ocean-inspired signature color.
He was inducted into the Rockport Art Association in 1991 as an artist member and taught sculpture at RAA. He earned an artist membership at the North Shore Arts Association in 1993. His most recent award was the Ivan N. Kamalic Memorial Award for his Bearskin Neck Bear. He also received the Richard Recchia Memorial Award for excellence in sculpture for a piece entitled “Sunning."
