Lewis, Eric – “Summer Hummingbird” 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 hummingbird on one side. The hummingbird is surrounded by gentle clouds, wind, and summer breeze 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 2020”.
