Year Flower, Lucy – Carved Seedpot with Avanyu & Sun
3.5"w x 2"h
Lucy Year Flower was known for her distinctive carved pottery. This seedpot is very deeply carved and highly polished. The design is a water serpent (avanyu) which is carved encircling the piece. It starts at the top and spirals around the sides. There is wonderful intricacy in the carving and note the sun face figure as well. Typical of her work, the background areas are also fully incised with deep lines. On the top there are also two small inset pieces of turquoise. It is in excellent condition with no chips, cracks, restoration or repair. It is signed, “Lucy Year Flower” on the bottom.
