Lewis, Lucy – Jar with Rain and Lighting Designs (1970s)
This is a classic jar by Lucy Lewis. She was one of the great Matriarch potters of the past century. This jar is coil built and painted using bee-weed, a plant. The design is one that combines many elements of Acoma pottery imagery. There are rain (fine-lines) and lightning designs. There is the red for the mesas and the rain falling on them. There are also flower patterns. The design is repeated across the surface of the jar. The shape of the jar has a sharp shoulder and a short neck. The jar is signed on the bottom, “Lucy M. Lewis”. It is in excellent condition with no chips, cracks, restoration, or repair. Definitely a classic!
