Garcia, Gloria “Golden Rod” – Bowl with Six Horses
Gloria Garcia is known for her miniature pottery. She is a daughter of Petra Gutierrez and the sister of Lois Gutierrez, Minnie Vigil, and Thelma Talachy. This small bowl is fully polished and fired a deep black. There are six horses etched into the surface of the clay. Each one is just a bit different and they are surrounded by plants and cloud designs. There are four full horses and two that are just the head of the horse. The polishing is exceptional with a high glossy surface. This piece is signed on the bottom with her Tewa name “GoldenRod”.
