Worth The Wait
Worth The Wait was sculpted by Kristina Lucas Francis and introduced in earthenware ceramic in 1998. She represents a young stock breed mare. She is approximately 1:24 or Breyer "Little Bit" scale; pieces of around this size were marketed as "Curio" scale by The Pour Horse. A run of 185 bay overo pintos and 85 bisques was produced. One known variation has a more peachy, roany color that occurred in an earlier batch of pieces. Worth The Wait was the last Curio scale piece sculpted for The Pour Horse by Kristina.

The piece to the extreme right is a test.
The piece above left and center is a claybody custom by Sarah Minkiewicz-Breunig, a test for the future Excalibur run.
The appy above left was glazed by Laurie Jo Jensen.
