Deborah Kunic

From my earliest days, though I had an interest in art, it was clearly through western eyes. As a kid, I poured over the etchings and drawings of Edward Borein, the paintings and sculptures of Rosa Bonheur and Charlie Russell, the timeless etchings and watercolors of Winslow Homer and the distinctive art of Jo Mora.

Living in the oak studded hills of the Central Coast, once home to the Indians and Spaniards known the world over as the finest horsemen in history, artist Deborah Kunic’s beautiful work reflects the rich heritage of this unique area.

  9. Deborah Kunic - Bay with Las Cruces Spade Bit
    $125.00
    There are many styles and designs on these fine old bridles, each is a unique masterpiece. Hitched hair bridles are hitched or "woven" with strands of horsehair, comprised usually of 6 to 8 hairs laid half with the root end one way and half with the roots at the other end. This is because the root end is thicker than the tips, and it is necessary to arrange them as such to keep the finished work even. Learn More
  10. Deborah Kunic - Buckskin in Hitched Hair Bridle
    $125.00
    This finished bridle horse has proven himself honest and responsive, and thus entrusted to wear such a fine, old hitched hair bridle. Most of the finest of these bridles were made in the Montana prisons 70 and 80 years ago; as the inmates had lots of time on their hands in the long winter months. It can take several full days of braiding to complete just a few inches of hitched hair. Learn More
