Garcia, Gloria “Golden Rod” – Large Bowl with Deer and Antelope Dancers
This is an exceptional larger bowl by Gloria Garcia. The bowl is fully polished and fired black. It is etched in a band around the shoulder of the piece. There are Antelope Dancers and Deer Dancers. They are each intricately etched into the clay. They are highlighted with red clay. There is a red incised sun medallion with an inset piece of turquoise. Opposite are five Tewa sun faces. Gloria’s combination of polishing and etched designs is always striking. This piece is signed on the bottom with her Tewa name “GoldenRod”.
