Lucy Lewis is one of the great Matriarch potters of the past century. This bowl is from the 1980s.  It is a very traditional Acoma design.  The bowl has four birds painted extending downward.  The birds heads are slipped red while the bodies are painted with bee-weed (black).  Note how the bodies have the straight lines and then the rain and lightning designs around the rim.  For a smaller piece, it is very tightly painted!  It is signed on the bottom, “Lucy M. Lewis”.  It is in excellent condition with no cracks, restoration, or repair.
