Effie Garcia is known for her deeply carved pottery. Each piece is coil-built, carved, stone polished, and traditionally fired. This bowl has a deeply carved avanyu (water serpent) as the design. It is a varied design with very angular carved lighthing and rain designs for the body. Note the depth of the carving and how she has outlined the design with the clay for emphasis. It is signed on the bottom in the clay, “Effie & Orville Garcia”.
