Garcia, Jessie – Bowl with Fish Designs (1960s)
Jessie Garcia is one of the great names in Acoma pottery. Between 1950 and 1970, she along with Lucy Lewis and Marie Z. Chino led the revival of Acoma pottery. This bowl is painted with a very unusual variation of design. The bowl has stylized fish encircling the piece. Once you see the round eye, follow it back to see the entire fish! What a creative design! It was traditionally fired which gives it some color variation on the surface. It is signed on the bottom, “Jessie Garcia”. It is in excellent condition with no chips, cracks, restoration, or repair. It was originally purchased in the 1960s.
