Emma Lewis was a daughter of noted potter Lucy M. Lewis.  This bowl is larger in size painted with bee-weed (black).  The design is a bird and a rabbit.  It is inspired by a Mimbres bowl from the 1100s with a similar image (see the last photo).  Lucy Lewis and her daughters began using Mimbres imagery in their pottery in the 1960s.  The rim of the bowl has a rectangular lightning design.    The bowl is signed on the bottom, “Emma Lewis”.  It is in excellent condition with no chips, cracks, restoration, or repair.
