Garcia, Jessie – Jar with Lightning and 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 jar has a low shoulder and sloping sides. It is painted with alternating lightning and rain patterns. It is a striking design in this vertical style. The result is a modernist appearance to the jar. It was traditionally fired which gives it some color variation on the surface. It is signed on the bottom, “Jessie Garcia”. It is in very good condition with no chips, cracks, restoration, or repair.
