This is an exceptional bowl by Lucy Lewis. She was one of the great Matriarch potters of the past century. This bowl is coil built and painted using bee-weed, a plant for the black. The design has a stylized version of her famous lighting design. The jagged lines are black, fine-line, and white (the negative space). Typical of her work from this period, the lines are precise and tightly painted. The bowl is thin-walled and well-formed. The bowl is dated “1964”. It is often easy to see that Lucy’s dated pieces are among her best in creative designs and forms. She only dated work in the 1960s’ into the early 1970s. The bowl was traditionally fired so there are color variations on the surface. The bowl is signed on the bottom, “Lucy M. Lewis”. It is in excellent condition with no chips, cracks, restoration, or repair. Definitely a classic and a piece of history!
