Three traditional koshares rest along the neck of this beautiful friendship vase created by Jemez potter Linda Lucero Fragua. Made entirely by hand, the piece features a narrow neck and wide inflection point, including stunning carving creating sharp, curved lines along the inflection, in between which intricate, traditional patterns are painted in red, black, brown, buff, and white. The patterns include step, harvest, feather, clouds, and rain, while beautifully painted corn stalks in black, grey and buff are painted along the neck, separating each koshare. The koshare figurines, also handmade, are painted in red, buff, grey, and black, while each holds a different item: one, a watermelon slice, another, a canteen, and the third, a drum. A wooden ladder protrudes from inside the vase, representative of a kiva, the rim of the vase painted in red and buff with step patterns. 9″ tall with ladder x 6″ wide. 7″ tall without ladder.
