It’s great to have a new tile from Jason Garcia. Jason has won numerous awards for his works in clay along with his Pueblo Revolt serigraph series. This piece is made from native clay and painted with native clay slips. This piece is part of his “Tewa Tales of Suspense” series that he began making in 2008. Each piece is inspired by graphic novels and early comic book art and the Pueblo Revolt of 1680. This piece has the Pueblo warrior breaking his chains. Typically, this is how Jason portrays Po’Pay, the leader of the Pueblo revolt. In the background is a Pueblo church to the left and a kiva to the right. The coloration is phenomenal! The tile was traditionally fired. The “date” on the piece is “Pajogeri XXII”, which stands for “Summer 2022”. His piece is signed with his Tewa name, Okuu Pin, which means Turtle Mountain. This tile is hand-built from native clay. All of the colors are derived from Native clay.
