$ 200.00

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 plate is stone polished and painted with bee-weed (black). The design is a Mimbres-inspired duck.  It is an interesting use of designs to create the duck.  The piece was traditionally fired so there are color variations on the surface.  It is in excellent condition with no chips, cracks, restoration, or repair.  It is signed on the bottom, “Sarah Garcia”.
