Lewis-Garcia, Diane – Seedpot with Mimbres Lizards and Fox
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 lizards and a Mimbres fox. Note the bodies of all the animals are made up of traditional Acoma designs! There is also a cut-out area in the shape of a step or mountain pattern. All the colors are from natural clay slips. The thin lines are very time consuming to paint! The lizards and fox 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, “D. Lewis”.
