Lewis, Lucy – Seedpot with Interlocking Stars (1980s)
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 piece has an opening offset to one side. The piece is fully painted with fine-line interlocking stars. There are eight-pointed stars that connect with four-pointed stars. There are three rows of stars. It was traditionally fired so the white has much more of a pearlescent coloration, which creates added depth. The seedpot is signed on the bottom, “Lucy M. Lewis”. It is in very good condition with no chips, cracks, restoration, or repair.
