Garcia, Sarah – Clay Owl (1970s)
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 one of the few owl figures we have seen of her work. The clay figurative work was popular in the 1970s. The owl is fully painted and note the raised eyes! It is signed on the bottom, “Sarah Garcia”. It is in excellent condition with no chips, cracks, restoration, or repair. .
