Lewis-Garcia, Diane – Seedpot with Mimbres Insect
Diane Lewis is known for her tightly painted miniature pottery. This is one of her very intricately painted seedpots. The top is painted with a Mimbres insect in the center of the piece. It is surrounded by various geometric patterns seen on Acoma pottery. All the various colors are from natural clay slips. The thin lines are very time consuming to paint! The lizards are inspired by the Mimbres pottery of the 1100’s. It is an exciting modern interpretation of classic Acoma imagery. It is signed on the bottom, “Diane Lewis”.
