Take It Slow

Garden greens looking a little blue? Is that unruly tangle of a yard making you lose your inner balance? Let Michael Gentilucci's centering sculptures bring peace, humor, and the art of Zen to off-kilter spaces.

Known for its slow-and-steady pace, the turtle adds a calming presence to outdoor spaces and reminds us to watch our speed and take in the little things in life. To add even more Zen-like charm, Chinese characters etched into the back of each turtle's robe represent the animal's primary characteristicólongevity. Michael's meditative sealed cement sculptures are designed to weather the elements through the four seasons as they center greenspaces with their amiable auras. Handmade in USA.

Michael and Alisa Gentilucci were relaxing in their garden amidst planters and garden accents, contemplating their future together. The next year, they launched a business. “We began making molds in our garage and soon realized we were onto something,” says Michael. They bought a property with a dilapidated Victorian cabin, some crumbled out-buildings, and an unfinished warehouse, and turned it into their garden shop, studio, and home. Michael designs the company’s expressive, inspirational garden art, and enlists the talent of local artists to sculpt it. "The positive response we receive from these spirited designs is an extraordinary feeling," he says. "Our customers smile while holding our art, and tell us stories about who they intend to give this gift to."

I really appreciate the shipping package it is very well protected. My brother got a big smile on his face when he saw the turtle. He liked it even more with the writing on the back for longevity. It is whimsical and sweet.

Darling addition for a sculpture garden lover

My sister placed it in her rock garden below her porch. It's absolutely adorable, durable, and heavy. it fits in perfectly with her rock garden water falls. I'm going to get her more to add to it. It's the perfect gift for someone who enjoys adding sculptures to their garden.

Awesome sculpture

I bought this for my dad who was recently diagnosed with cancer. The meaning of "longevity" is perfect. He and my mom love to garden, so this meaningful symbol will, hopefully, inspire and comfort them for many, many more years to come.

Perfect garden addition

I purchased this gift (the large) as a retirement present for a co-worker who is an avid gardener. I was pleasantly surprised when it arrived; it's sturdy and appears that it will be long lasting. It's also adorable and I love that each animal is assigned a "meaning". I will be purchasing one for my own garden in the near future. Depending on the space you plan to place the sculpture, I would recommend the large (as that's still on the smaller size) and may get lost in a lush garden space.
