Garcia, Sarah – Seedpot with Bird Wings (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 seedpot is painted on the top with two-row of bird wings. It’s striking when looking down at the top and seeing how the rows inter-connect to create visual movement. The seedpot 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 with no chips, cracks, restoration, or repair.
