“Rodeo Buffalo”

Chris Fragua

$235.00

Description

One of the many Fraguas, a family noted for their figural pottery pieces, Chris has a particular style, laced with good humor.

Here, he depicts a Koshare, a Pueblo clown who entertains, and sometimes instructs, as he makes fun of inappropriate behavior.

Bull riding and bronco riding are familiar rodeo past-times, but riding a buffalo?!

And, this silly Koshare is facing the wrong way – nothing to hang onto except the buffalo’s tail!

The Koshare looks like he’s calling for help; the buffalo looks astonished and a little spooked.

Made traditionally, with hand gathered, mixed, coiled, and formed local clay, additional clay slips and wild spinach paint, and fired in the ground.

Another delightful smile-bringer from this well-known artist.
