The Evolution of The Frank Colson Horse

 

 

 From the beginning of time, artists have used the horse as a subject of artistic expression. 

Frank Colson created his first horse in 1962 while teaching at Penland, North Carolina. Although most of his horses since that time have been in clay, this first horse was a bronze jewelry chest. The mid-section of the horse was hinged so that the upper half, with the head and tail, lifted to reveal a red velvet lining. 

The next year, Mr. Colson had a one-man exhibition at the LeMoyne Art Foundation in Tallahassee and his second horse came into being. This was similar in concept, having an upper half that would open, but it was made of clay from wheel thrown and slab parts and was three feet high. When the upper half of the horse was opened, one would find two small clay figures making love in the inner darkness of the lower body. 

Over the years, sculptural horses, most often in clay and occasionally in bronze, have been a homogenous part of Mr. Colson's creative process. Below is a description of Frank Colsonís horses that found a permanent stable in locations all over the world, from New York to Florida,  California to New Zealand, where it was accepted  in the prestigious international Fletcher Challenge Ceramic Award exhibition in 1990.
