Garcia, Effie – Bowl with Plant Design
Effie Garcia is known for her deeply carved Santa Clara pottery. Each piece is coil built, carved, stone polished and traditionally fired. This bowl has her classic shape with a narrow base and wide shoulder. Around the sides are four flowers carved deeply into the clay. Each of the flowers has additional leaf patterns and the overall carved areas are outlined in clay, giving it a matte appearance. The bowl is highly polished and signed on the bottom.
