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.  There is a history of owl figures at Acoma but most are smaller and few are as detailed as the work by Jessie Garica.  This owl is coil-built and painted with bee-weed and clay slips.  The eyes are raised, and the beak extended. The body has feathers painted with bee-weed.  The owl is signed under the wing, “Jessie Garcia”.  It is in excellent condition with no chips, cracks, restoration or repair.  It is an excellent piece of her figurative pottery.
