Garcia, Jessie – Seedpot with Star Design (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 seedpot is coil-built and thin-walled. It is painted on the top with a star design surrounded by rain designs. 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.
