Garcia, Effie – Bowl with Deep Carved Cloud and Mesa Designs
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 mesa and cloud design. The clouds extend downward from the rim in a step design, while the mesas extend up from the shoulder. 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, “E. Garcia”. It is in excellent condition with no chips, cracks, restoration, or repair.
