Garcia, Jessie – Bowl with Swirling Rain 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 has a simple swirling rain pattern. They are thin lines that extend from the rim to near the base. They create the strong optics of the rain in the wind. 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.
