A sweet fox figure by a member of the prominent Yepa family of potters, and his wife.
Totally traditional, from gathering the clay, mixing, coiling, smoothing, painting with natural clay slip and wild spinach paint.
With his innocent expression, this fox can’t be thinking of the neighbors’ chickens.
He is decorated with an assertive cornstalk, symbol of happiness, good health and abundance, and a series of striped half-circles that symbolize the rain that helps the corn grow.
Winsome and appealing, this is a delightful little figure that is not often seen in pottery.
