Garcia, Sarah – Seedpot with Spiraling Flower Design (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, was largely responsible for the revival of Anasazi and Tularosa designs on contemporary Acoma vessels. This seedpot is painted on the top with a radiating or spiraling flower pattern. It is painted in eight sections. It’s striking when looking down at the top and seeing how the rows appear to interconnect 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 condition with no chips, cracks, restoration, or repair.
