Garcia, Sarah – Clay Pig with Flower Designs (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 a charming clay pig. It is coil built and painted with bee-weed and red clay slips for the design. On the side of the pig are flowers. The clay figurative work was popular in the 1970s. It is signed on the bottom, “Sarah Garcia”. It is in excellent condition with no chips, cracks, restoration, or repair.
