Lewis, Lucy – Bowl with Heartline Deer (1980’s)
Lucy Lewis is one of the great Matriarch potters of the past century. This bowl is coil built and painted using bee-weed, a plant. The design consists of three heartline deer. This imagery is a classic to both Acoma and Zuni pottery, with the heartline signifying the center or “heart” of the animal. This bowl is thin walled and delicately painted. It was traditionally fired so the white has much more of a pearlescent coloration, which creates added depth. In the 1980’s the surfaces of her pieces were more highly polished, giving them a smoother feel. The bowl is signed on the bottom, “Lucy M. Lewis”. It is in very good condition with no chips, cracks, restoration or repair.
