Garcia, Gloria “Golden Rod” – Seedpot with Avanyu and Turquoise
This seedpot by Gloria Garcia is fully polished and fired black. The design is a water serpent, which encircles the piece. It is a tightly etched design and there is a sun design around the opening and small rainclouds in a band above the avanyu. There is a single inset piece of turquoise for the eye of the avanyu. Gloria’s combination of polishing and etched designs is always striking. This piece is signed on the bottom with her Tewa name “GoldenRod”.
