This piece, made in 2000, is a joyful portrayal of a sitting Koshare clown and his watermelon! The Koshare is holding a piece of watermelon in his hands, and in a beautifully coiled and painted pottery bowl, sit three more pieces of watermelon. These clowns present themselves with black and white horizontal stripes painted on their bodies and faces, paint black circles around the mouth and eyes, and part their hair in the center and bind it in two bunches which stand upright on each side of the head and are trimmed with corn husks. In this case, Kathleen used a muted green slip to paint the stripes. Such a cheerful and expressive work in clay.
