Lewis, Eric – “Fanciful” Hummingbird Jar

7.25"w x 8.25"h

$ 725.00

This is a classic-style tall water jar by Eric Lewis.  It has a high shoulder and a short neck. The jar is fully painted and there is a stylized hummingbird on one side.  It is a more complex hummingbird with swirls in the designs of the body.  The result, however, is striking!  The remainder of the jar has cloud and wind designs.  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 2021”.
