Garcia, Sarah – Jar with Feather and Star Designs
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 jar is thin-walled and tightly painted. There are four sections of turkey feather deisgns. They are separated by diamond shaped stars. The jar was traditionally fired outside so there are some color variations on the surface. It is signed on the bottom, “S. Garcia”. It is in very good condition with no chips, cracks, restoration, or repair. It was originally purchased in the late 1960s.
