About The Artist:
Steve Lucas is exceptional not only with his use of form, but also with his use of design. Here are two distinctive pieces of his
pottery. Both bowls are perfectly formed and thin walled. The bowl on the left has a star pattern which encircles the top part of the
bowl. Looking down from the top there is a beautiful symmetry to the pattern on the form. The jar on the right has a modified bird
tail and bird wing pattern around the shoulder. The area below the shoulder is fully polished red and the entire piece is perfectly
balanced on a small base. Both pieces are painted in black (bee-weed, a plant), red clay slip and a white clay slip. Steve has
won numerous awards for his pottery, including "Best of Show" at Santa Fe Indian Market. His work continues to be among the
most sought after of Hopi potters.
