Lucy M Lewis Acoma Pottery Turkey Appraisal
We bought this pottery in New Mexico in the late 60’s. It’s possible th it was ‘over-fired’ since there are some black marks on it.
Otherwise it is in perfect condition
We bought a fine bowl by J. Lewis at the same time.
AW says: That’s an excellent example of Lucy Martin Lewis Acoma pottery. These piece of hand coiled pottery are pit-fired. It’s rare that these pieces of clay art come out perfect.
Lucy began making pottery at the age of eight years old under the supervision of her aunt.
She mastered the traditional black on white design technique of the Acoma Pueblo Native Americans. She is sometimes compared to Pablo Picasso. You have a wonderful piece of American history. The Acoma Native Americans considered the clay they worked with to be sacred.
