Drummer StorytellerMarilyn Lewis Ray
The charming storyteller figures of this prize-winning potter are widely collected.
Totally hand made and traditional, from clay to paint, and pit-fired, they are detailed and animated, with sweet faces.
This Pueblo drummer is really enjoying himself, judging by his gleeful smile.
Joining him are two equally cheery small boys, a puppy, two birds and a ladybug.
Notice the the slingshot in the upper boy’s pocket, and the way the boy at the bottom is reaching out to pet the puppy.
The artist’s work seems to be getting more and more creative with each piece.
This work is totally adorable and beautifully crafted; a collector’s delight by a highly reputed potter.
