Garcia, Jessie – 15″ Corrugated Water Jar (1970’s)

This is an exceptional large jar by Jessie Garcia.  She is one of the great names in Acoma pottery.  Between 1950 and 1970, she along with Lucy Lewis and Marie Z. Chino, led the revival of Acoma pottery.  This is one of the largest pieces of her pottery we have come across.  It is a water jar shape and the entire piece is corrugated in style.  “Corrugated” means that each individual coil is left exposed and she would press them down to create the triangular design.  The result is a striking appearance as it seems as if each row overlaps the one below. The neck is plain.  The entire piece was traditionally fired, so there is some slight color variation from the fire.  The jar is signed on the bottom, “Jessie Garcia”.  It is in excellent condition with no chips, cracks, restoration or repair.
