Featuring four children with linked hands around the neck, this beautiful friendship vase was created by Jemez potter Linda Lucero Fragua. The piece features a buff backdrop painted in red, black and grey designs including step, feather and weather patterns, while each of the children, two girls and two boys, sit along the top above the piece’s inflection holding hands. Each of the children’s mouths are open and eyes expressive, all painted in variations of traditional patterns in red, black, and grey, while a wooden ladder protrudes from the opening of the piece. 9″ tall with ladder x 6″ wide. 6 3/4″ tall without ladder.
