4"w x 6"h

$ 975.00

Lucy Lewis is one of the great Matriarch potters of the past century. This long neck jar is coil built and painted using bee-weed, a plant.  The design on the top of the piece is a mountain pattern. It is smaller at the neck and gets larger by the shoulder.  It is an early example of the “op-art” style latter used effectively by Dorothy Torivio in the 1980s.  The jar was traditionally fired so the white has much more of a pearlescent coloration, which creates added depth.  The jar is signed on the bottom, “Lucy M. Lewis”.  It is in very good condition with no chips, cracks, restoration or repair.
