Lewis-Garcia, Diane – Oval Seedpot with Mimbres Animals and Figures
Diane Lewis is known for her tightly painted miniature pottery. This is one of her distinctive oval seedpots. The piece is painted on the top with a complex series of designs. The figures, as well as the birds, fish, rabbit, and turtle, are inspired by the Mimbres pottery of the 1100’s. The surrounding areas are painted with classic Acoma patterns including rain and lightning designs. Note the intricacy of the painting! All the various colors are natural clay slips. It is an exciting modern interpretation of classic Acoma imagery. It is signed on the bottom, “D. Lewis”.
