Garcia, Greg – Wide Bowl with Bear Paws
Greg Garcia was known for his use of classic Santa Clara forms for his pottery. This is a wide shaped bowl with a sharp edge which slopes to the rim. The bowl has three bear paws as the design. The entire surface is stone polished and fired black. The bear paw is a traditional symbol for Santa Clara pottery, telling the story of a bear who led the Pueblo people to water during a drought. The bowl is in excellent condition with no chips, cracks, restoration or repair. It is signed on the bottom in the clay, “Greg Garcia”.
