Bernard and Sharon Lewis are
both a married couple and members of one of the two Lewis families
at Acoma Pueblo. A source of confusion for many is the fact that
there are two unrelated Lewis families at Acoma.
The most famous, of course,
is the Lucy Lewis family. However, there is another accomplished
Lewis family -- that of Katherine Lewis and her children: Marilyn
Henderson Ray, Carolyn Concho, Diane Lewis, Judy Lewis, Rebecca
Lucario and Bernard Lewis and his wife, Sharon.
Like all members of this family,
Bernard and Sharon work with many different colors of paints.
Each of the children however, has a distinctive style. Bernard
is a potter only and he specializes in pots with three dimensional
lizards creeping in and about the pot.
Sharon then does the painting
of Bernard's pots. Sharon also makes her own pots, always seedpots
like this one, decorated with very well painted designs. They
are a most talanted couple in a very creative family.
