$ 300.00

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, was largely responsible for the revival of Anasazi and Tularosa designs on contemporary Acoma vessels.  This bowl has a creative design.  The top row of the design has bird wings alternating painted black and with fine-lines.  The next row they are painted in reverse. It is a creative use of black-and-white designs.  The bowl was traditionally fired outside so there are some color variations on the surface.  It is signed on the bottom, “Sarah Garcia”.  It is in excellent condition with no chips, cracks, restoration, or repair.
