Lewis, Lucy M. – Mini Bowl with Mimbres Figures (1970s)
Lucy M. Lewis is one of the great matriarchs and revivalists of Acoma pottery. This small bowl is coil built and it is painted with a series of Mimbres figures. Beginning in the 1960’s, Lucy used imagery from the Mimbres pottery of the 1100s. The lines are tight and crisp against the white background. The bowl is signed on the bottom “Lucy M. Lewis”. It is in very good condition with no chips, cracks restoration or repair. While small, it is certainly representative of her pottery and painting skills!
