Garcia, Gloria “Golden Rod” – Bowl with Bears
This bowl by Gloria Garcia is fully polished and fired black. The designs are etched into the clay. There are two scenes, each with realistic bears as the design. Separating them are two bands with etched bear paws. There is an additional red clay slip added to the rain design around the rim of the bowl. Gloria’s combination of polishing and etched designs is always striking. This piece is signed on the bottom with her Tewa name “GoldenRod”.
