Garcia, Sarah – Jar with Mountain Designs (1960s)
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 a series of mountain designs painted in small triangle form across the surface of this small jar. It was traditionally fired outside so there are some color variations on the surface. It is signed on the bottom, “S. Garcia”. It is in excellent condition with no chips, cracks, restoration, or repair.
