Lewis, Lucy – Bowl with Fineline Star and Mountain Designs (1970’s)
Lucy Lewis is one of the great Matriarch potters of the past century. This bowl is coil built and painted with bee-weed (a plant) for the black. The bowl has alternating fine-line painted star patterns with triangular mountain patterns. The alternating designs create a dramatic appearance on the bowl. This piece is from the 1970s. It has been native fired and has a beautiful coloration to the white clay slip. It is signed on the bottom, “Lucy M. Lewis”. It is in very good condition with no chips, cracks, restoration or repair.
