Turk or Treat Turkey is an imaginary resident of the Thanksgiving Fantasy World created by American Folk Artist Lori Mitchell.  Imbued with a nostalgic quality that reminds collectors of old toys and past Thanksgiving celebrations, each papier-mâché statue tells a story. With a little imagination, you can arrange any number of Ms. Mitchell’s characters to tell your interpretation of The First Thanksgiving. A graduate of the Rhode Island School of Design, Ms. Mitchell found her inspiration in the bulbous-bodied, slim legged look of Film-Maker Tim Burton’s animated characters. East Coast based, Ms. Mitchell began sculpting her characters in 1998 and has never looked back. “As a kid, I found everything exciting and surprising, so I like for these figures to unlock that sense of wonder.  My intention is to entertain adults as well as children, so there’s got to be a certain level of sophistication to pull adults back into childhood.” Turk or Treat by Lori Mitchell
