Lewis, Lucy – Seedpot with Bird Wing Designs (1970’s)
Lucy Lewis is one of the great Matriarch potters of the past century. This seedpot is coil built and painted using bee-weed, a plant. The design on the top of the piece is a bird wing pattern along with a rain design. The design is around the top while the remainder of the bowl is white. It was traditionally fired so the white has much more of a pearlescent coloration, which creates added depth. The bowl is signed on the bottom, “Lucy M. Lewis”. It is in good condition with no chips, cracks, restoration or repair.
