Known for her whimsical and highly detailed koshare figurines, Jemez potter Kathleen Wall has become world famous due to her talent. Perhaps one of her most recognized pieces, the star gazer, is depicted in this incredible piece. The koshare rests upon an oval, handmade clay stand painted in black and grey atop a buff backdrop in star patterns. It holds a clay bowl in one hand, in which a black clay star is placed, while the opposite arm is outstretched, another clay star grasped in only two of the koshare’s fingers. Its face features vibrant and expressive eyes and a wide smile, while its hair is drawn up in two pig tails, featuring straw and leather accents. Black leather also surrounds the star gazer’s neck and waist, while its body is painted in black stripes and its feet, in grey and black booties. 18″ tall with stand x 11″ wide x 9″ deep. Stand, stars, and bowl are removable.
