Lewis, Eric – Large Jar with Buffalo
This larger jar by Eric Lewis is a new and more complex design for his pottery. It is a buffalo on one side and stylized birds on the opposite side. The jar has high shoulders and a short neck. The buffalo is wonderfully painted and a bit different from his other more linear designs. Eric uses his designs to follow the shape of the jar and accentuate its form. Eric has taken classic Acoma linear designs and made them both bolder and more graphic. The result is a striking jar with tightly painted imagery. Eric remains one of the young Pueblo potters to watch!
