Garcia, Sarah – Seedpot with Star 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 star pattern. The star has fine lines and extends to the shoulder. The seedpot was traditionally fired outside so there are some color variations on the surface. It is signed on the bottom, “Sarah Garcia”. It is in excellent condition with no chips, cracks, restoration, or repair.
