This married couple – part of the Yepa family of noted potters – collaborate on their pottery, favoring sweetly abstracted figures, like this smiling horse.
Traditionally made, of hand-gathered, mixed, coiled, smoothed and painted local clay, he is definitely a charmer.
The designs painted on the edges, refer to rainfall – the black stripes – and colors of the sun, the earth, water, and rainclouds.
Stepped motifs on his front legs symbolize rainfall, also.
Friendly, creative, and loaded with good luck symbols, this cheery horse is a delightful folk-arty figure to brighten your home and collection.
