Lewis, Sharon – Jar with Heartline Deer
Sharon Lewis has developed her own very distinctive style of painted design. Her pieces are beautifully formed, thin-walled, and then tightly painted. This jar is the smaller version of a classic Acoma jar with Heartline Deer. There are two heartline deer on the jar. The heartlines represent the center or “spirit” of the animal. They are separated by rain designs. Around the top has a star design. The black is from bee-weed and the red is a natural clay slip. The jar is signed on the bottom, “Sharon Lewis”.
