Sharon Lewis is a full blooded Native American Indian. She was born in 1959 and is a member of the Red Corn Clan from the Acoma Pueblo.

Sharon was inspired to continue the long lived family tradition of hand coiling pottery by Marilyn Ray and other family members. They taught Sharon all the fundamentals of making pottery using traditional methods. The lucrative aspect of the business also inspired Sharon in the early years. Sharon has been working with clay since 1978.

Sharon specializes in hand coiled miniature seed pots. She gathers her natural clay and other pigments from within the Acoma Pueblo. The clay is cleaned, mixed, shaped, sanded, painted, and fired outdoors. Her designs are animals, kokopelli’s, mimbres designs, and various geometric or fine line designs. She sometimes collaborates with her husband and they make pottery together. She is related to Diane Lewis, Carolyn Lewis, Judy Lewis, Rebecca Lucario (sisters-in-law), and Bernard E. Lewis (husband). Sharon signs her pottery as: Sharon Lewis, Acoma, followed by a corn symbol to denote her clan origin.
