This married couple – part of the Yepa family of noted potters – collaborate on their pottery, favoring sweetly abstracted figures of local wildlife, like this handsome raccoon.
Sleek and contemporary in appearance, his stylized black raccoon mask is dramatic.
His banded tail is another graphic detail at the back, so he looks just as dapper from any angle.
A graphic cornstalk and flower decorate his rounded body, with plant and lined rain symbols on the sides.
These indicate that he helps protect plants and crops by hunting for vermin, and other pests.
Traditionally made, of hand-gathered, mixed, coiled, smoothed and painted local clay, he is definitely a charmer.
