Clementine Hunter Baptism at Cane River Platter
Clementine Hunter’s famous paintings of cotton pickings, wash days, pecan pickings, weddings, baptisms, funerals and other scenes of life on Melrose Plantation have made her works an important part of American history. The Clementine Hunter ceramic collection is entirely made by hand and hand-painted. No two pieces are alike. Each piece has its own distinctive shape whose textured surface allows you to feel the passion in her work. Hang them on your wall, display them on your bookshelf, use them as a centerpiece for your table, or make them your favorite serving pieces for any occasion.
This platter depicts the ritual of baptizing new church members in the Cane River, which was a much celebrated event.
