Lewis, Eric – Large Jar with Parrot and Swirling Clouds
This jar by Eric Lewis has a graphically painted parrot as the design. The remainder of the jar has stylized swirling clouds and bird wings. The shape works perfectly for the bold design and the area opposite the parrot flows perfectly on the piece. The jar is tall with a slight neck. 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!
