Anita Garcia Lowden was a daughter of Jessie Garcia and sister of Stella Shutiva. She was one of the earlier Acoma Pueblo potters to use Mimbres designs. She passed away at a relatively young age. Her pottery was coil-built, painted with bee-weed (black) and clay slips, and traditionally fired. Much of her work was inspired in the revival of designs from Chaco Canyon, Mesa Verde, and other ancient locations.
