This original mixed medium rooster "Chicken Delignt" was created by Eric Abraham (1936-2013) for a 25th anniversary fundraiser at the Red Barn Studio, Lindsborg KS, and is one of 25 roosters made by different artists in 2013. It measures 18.75"x12.25"x2.75". Abraham moved from eastern Kansas to Lucas in 2004 and converted a former auto dealership building into a studio and gallery. As owner of the Flying Pig Studio, Lucas, KS, Abraham was known for slipping a flying pig into all of his porcelain artwork. In his biography he called himself the “World Renowned Professional Professor of Porkelain Proficiency."

Abraham was born Nov. 27, 1936, in Harlem in New York to parents who were artists. After his honorable discharge from U.S. Air Force Intelligence, he received a bachelor of fine arts in painting from the Kansas City Art Institute and his master’s degree in ceramics from the Univeristy of Nebraska.

He taught ceramics in the early 1970s at Kansas State and later at several other universities before striking out on his own.

He served as vice president on the board of the Grassroots Art Center and was also on the board of the Red Barn Studio Museum in Lindsborg, Kan.

Abraham was an instructor at SummerVail Art Workshops for 12 years and has over the years continued to teach workshops and served as artist in residence for many communities throughout the Midwest.

He lived in Denver for 16 years, operating his ceramics studio in Denver until 1999, at which time he moved it to Wabaunsee, Kan. In 2004, he relocated to Lucas to realize his dream by opening the Flying Pig Studio and Gallery. From the early ’70s until present time, Abraham showed his work at six to seven art fairs and festivals per year, never retiring.While the Raymer Society makes every effort to offer authentic, original artwork it is ultimately the bidders responsible for assessing and determining the work of art’s authenticity, condition and quality before purchasing.
