Garcia, Gloria “Golden Rod” – Seedpot with Mustang and Skunk
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 taller seedpot is fully polished and fired a deep black. On the top is a mustang rearing backward with a skunk below its legs! Look at the face on the skunk with his tail high in the air! She added just a bit of white clay slip for the skunk’s tail. The polishing is exceptional with a high glossy surface. This piece is signed on the bottom with her Tewa name “GoldenRod”.
