Garcia, Effie – Bowl with Deep Carved Walking Bear Paw Design
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 design called a “walking bear paw”. It is meant to look like a bear walking around the bowl. 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 Garcia”.
