Lewis, Lucy – Jar with Feather and Rain Designs (1980s)
Lucy Lewis is one of the great Matriarch potters of the past century. This jar is from the 1980s. It has her classic cloud and rain designs above the shoulder and below are Acoma bird and rain designs. The jar is a later piece and a bit asymmetric in form, which can be seen in the photos. However, there is still a tightness to the painting and it follows the shape. It is in good condition with no cracks, restoration or repair. There is some overall spalling, which is not unexpected. It is signed on the bottom, “Lucy M. Lewis”.
