Lewis, Lucy – Small Jar with Mimbres Flute Players(1970’s)
Lucy Lewis is one of the great Matriarch potters of the past century. This small jar is coil built and painted using bee-weed (a plant). The jar has a lightning design on the neck. Around the sides are three Mimbres flute players. Lucy was inspired to revive the Mimbres imagery on Acoma pottery in the 1960’s. 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.
