Garcia, Sarah – Bowl with Lightning Designs (1970’s)
Sarah Garcia (1928-2015) was born at Laguna Pueblo to Maria Trujillo. However, she spent her adult life at Acoma Pueblo. She, along with Jessie Garcia, Lucy M. Lewis, and Marie Z. Chino, were largely responsible for the revival of Anasazi and Tularosa designs on contemporary Acoma vessels. Her daughter Goldie Hayah continues making pottery. This is a classic style Acoma jar with very tightly painted designs. There are lightning and rain patterns encompassing the surface of the bowl. The bowl is signed on the bottom, “Sarah Garcia”. It is in very good condition with no chips, cracks, restoration or repair.
