Lewis-Garcia, Diane – Oval Seedpot with Women and Fish
Diane Lewis is known for her tightly painted miniature pottery. This is one of her very intricately painted seedpots. The top is painted with intricate Mimbres inspired women, fish and a woman playing the flute with a baby. Separating the various images are geometric Acoma designs. There is a cut-out in the clay on the top in the shape of a kiva step design. All the colors are from natural clay slips. It is an exciting modern interpretation of classic Acoma imagery. It is signed on the bottom, “D. Lewis”.
