Garcia, Sarah – Large Jar with Inturned Rim and 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 is an unusual shape with the wide shoulder and the downturned rim. The piece is fully painted with four different lighting and rain patterns. Note the use of the fine-line designs throughout the jar. The design extends from the rim to near the base. The jar is signed on the bottom, “Sarah Garcia”. It is in very good with no chips, cracks, restoration or repair.
