Garcia, Sarah – Seedpot with Swirling Star Design (1960’s)
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 is a classic style Acoma seedpot with a swirling star and lightning design on the top. The design is tightly painted using bee-weed for the design. The seedpot is signed on the bottom, “S. Garcia”. It is in excellent condition with no chips, cracks, restoration, or repair.
