Lewis, Eric – “Flying Above” Hummingbird Design Jar

6.25"w x 6.25"h

$ 775.00

This is a classic water jar by Eric Lewis.  It has a round shoulder and a short neck. The jar is fully painted with designs.  This jar has a complex designed hummingbird.  The way Eric painted the hummingbird, it looks like it is either flying towards you, or you are looking down on it!  Great optical illusion!  The remainder of the jar has swirling birds and wind designs. 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 2022”.
