Dimensions: 13" x 13" x 6". In this painting, Clementine Hunter documents the hard work of hand picking rows of cotton on Melrose Plantation in central Louisiana. Before chemicals were used to control grass growing in the fields, farmers put geese in the fields to eat the grass. Hunter's paintings are a visual history of singular events of plantation life. 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. With each piece purchased, a percentage of the proceeds goes back to Clementine Hunter's estate to further promote Clementine Hunter.
