Garcia, Sarah – Jar with Lightning 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 jar has black-on-white lightning design which combines fine-line and larger black areas as the dynamic part of the design. The design extends from the rim to the base. The jar is signed on the bottom, “Sarah Garcia”. It is in good with no chips, cracks, restoration or repair but some overall surface spalling.
