Garcia, Sarah – Seedpot with Swirling 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, was largely responsible for the revival of Anasazi and Tularosa designs on contemporary Acoma vessels. This seedpot is painted on the top with a swirling bird wing pattern. There are two rows of interlocking and swirling bird wings. 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.
