Lewis, Emma – Plate with Acoma Birds (1970s)
Emma Lewis was a daughter of noted potter Lucy M. Lewis. This is one of her few plates we have had in the gallery. It is painted with two interlocking Acoma birds. They are painted with bee-weed (black) and a polished red/orange clay. The rim of the plate is corrugated in a triangular pattern. It is signed on the side of the rim, “E. Lewis”. It is in excellent condition with no chips, cracks, restoration or repair.
