Cloutierville, LA (PRWEB) October 06, 2015
Natchitoches Pecans has announced the addition of a unique collection of ceramics and embroidery recreating the works of Clementine Hunter to its product line. Hunter, one of the most important self-taught American artists of the 20th century, was born in 1886 at Hidden Hill Plantation, which was later renamed Little Eva Plantation - the home of Natchitoches Pecans.
The Louisiana pecan company strives to promote the legacy of the artist who, without formal training, painted scenes from her life on the plantation: baptisms, weddings, zinnias, fishing, playing cards, cotton picking and pecan picking. Already available from Natchitoches Pecans is a “Clementine for the Holidays” gift box featuring a variety of sweet and savory pecan products.
Doug Gitter of Gitter Gallery created The Clementine Hunter Collection to share his love of the self-taught artist. The collection features hand-painted ceramic platters, bowls, and dinnerware as well as hand-embroidered pillows and linen hand towels. All items feature recreations of Clementine’s work. Gitter selected a group of highly-skilled artisans to create the collection, and no two pieces are alike.
The collection - available in addition to Natchitoches Pecans’ traditional shelled pecans, spiced pecans, pecan candies, gourmet pecan oil, and other pecan gift items - will be available at The Little Eva Plantation Pecan Orchard Store in Cloutierville, LA as well as online at http://www.natchitochespecans.com.
With every purchase made from The Clementine Hunter Collection by Gitter Gallery, a portion of the proceeds goes toward preservation and interpretation of the Clementine Hunter House at Melrose Plantation, a National Historic Landmark, where Clementine lived the remainder of her life.
