Lewis, Dolores – Lightning Design Seed Bowl (2010)
Dolores Lewis is a daughter of renowned potter Lucy M. Lewis. Dolores is known for use of classic Acoma designs. This is one of the larger pieces we have seen of her work. It is very tightly painted with the classic lightning design. The design flows around the surface with a dramatic appearance. Lucy Lewis revived this design from historic Chaco Canyon pottery beginning in the 1960s. The jar is signed on the bottom, “Dolores Lewis”. It is in excellent condition with no chips, cracks, restoration, or repair.
