I made an open sign and got it in place! I still have a lot to do but the little sculpture gallery in Barrington Passage, NS, Canada, Earth ... will be open most evenings and weekends.

The sand where these little guys make their nests has a lot of tiny pebbles. They simply make a depression in the sand to lay their eggs. These nests are incredibly difficult to see, even if you are standing beside one.
Recent efforts to keep pets and people away from the nests are helping to return their numbers from the endangered list.
I made the stones look realistic by mixing colour into the clay and using a matt clear glaze. I really liked how it turned out and plan to revisit the theme some day.
