Coille Hooven, Magic Acorn Tureen, 1979, glazed porcelain with cobalt stain, Smithsonian American Art Museum, Given in memory of Floyd Douglas Conkey and Evelyn Blunt Conkey, 1981.77
Magic Acorn Tureen offers a fairytale scene of small porcelain animals in hats who read and relax by the looped handles on the lid. Coille Hooven left the pot its natural white color, using touches of blue glaze to accent the leaves and define the figures.
