Dad is renowned sculptor Cliff Fragua, but this younger artist has chosen pottery as her medium of expression. There is a sculptural quality about this lovely little olla, in its charmingly rotund form.Traditional designs are crisply painted around the shoulder and rim of the piece: flowers, water and rain symbols. The stepped designs represent rain, as the curlicues symbolize water. The result, the flower, represents all crops, with little seeds in the center, suggesting abundance. The colors are all natural clay slips, with wild spinach infusion for the black, and the painting style is both graceful, bold, and graphic.A little pot with a large allure, priced for all wallets.
