Each year, during Collector’s Weekend, we try to create a weekend that celebrates tradition. At the event’s main event, the Collector’s Dinner, one lucky participant is chosen to work with Judi in designing their own piece that will be commercially available. This year’s Collector’s Design Series winner, Dee Mirando-Gould, worked with Judi to design a piece inspired by close ties to the United States Fish and Wildlife Service. Holding books about sea turtles, this Sea Life Santa is painted with Mt. Ranier—as based on vintage posters by the National Parks Service—on the back and seals and sea otters on the sides. Themed with sea animals, the blue coat provides the perfect background color of the sea turtle to take center stage in his arms.
