Lewis, Eric – “Mystic Bald Eagle” Jar
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 stylized bald eagle on one side. The wings of the eagle are spectacular with their flow of design and shape! The remainder of the jar has bird and bird wing patterns encircling the piece in a graphic style. 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”.
