Garcia, Gloria “Golden Rod” – Bowl with Cougar and Deer
This is an intricate bowl by Gloria Garcia. The bowl is fully polished and fired red. It is etched with a design scene around the piece. There are two deer standing next to a bush. Behind the bush is a cougar approaching them down a hill. There is also a band of cloud and rain designs that are highlighted with blue clay slip. Gloria’s combination of polishing and etched designs is always striking. This piece is signed on the bottom with her Tewa name “GoldenRod”.
