Garcia, Jessie – Four Color Jar with Plant Designs (1970’s)
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 jar is a classic Acoma shape with the high shoulder and sloping neck. The jar is fully painted with a plant and lightning design. The designs are painted in black and then highlighted with additional red and ochre clay slips. The various colors create the classic Acoma “Four Color” or Polychrome jar. The jar was traditionally fired and it is signed on the bottom, “Jessie Garcia” It is in very good condition with no chips, cracks, restoration or repair.
