This oval ceramic platter with Clementine Hunter's artwork records the horse drawn wagon hauling cotton from the fields to the gin as it was done for hundreds of years prior to mechanization coming to agriculture. Clementine Hunter lived and worked on Melrose Plantation, one of the largest cotton farms in Louisiana.

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 will go toward preservation and interpretation of the Clementine Hunter House at Melrose Plantation, a National Historical Landmark.
