Lewis, Lucy – Jar with Eight Interlocking Stars (1970s)
Lucy Lewis is one of the great Matriarch potters of the 1900s. She was an important revivalist of Acoma pottery throughout her career. This jar is coil built and painted with a fine-line star pattern. Each of the eight stars is painted to interlock with the one next to it. Lucy would paint her pieces with bee-weed for the black and each piece was traditionally fired outdoors. This bowl is in very good condition with no chips, cracks, restoration, or repair. It is signed on the bottom, “Lucy M. Lewis”.
