Lewis, Eric – “Butterfly Flight” Water Jar

6.25"w x 8"h

$ 625.00

This is a classic style water jar by Eric Lewis.  It has a high shoulder and a short neck. The jar is fully painted and there is a large butterfly on one side. Eric has painted the wings of the butterfly with stylized graphics used elsewhere on the jar.  As the jar is turned there are swirls and paths of the butterfly in flight.  It is a complex piece in design yet the imagery flows perfectly across the surface and matches the shape.  The strong graphics on Eric’s pottery give them a modernist appearance. However, look closer and you can see a variety of traditional designs that he has used for the designs that are all based on traditional Acoma patterns. The jar is signed on the bottom, “Eric Lewis 2020”.
