Garcia, Shana – Jar with Bird Wing & Kiva Designs
5.5"w x 5"h
Shana Garcia is known for her very thin walled pottery. Each piece is coil built and painted with yucca to create the long thin lines. This jar has a series of bird wing patterns as part of the overall design. They swirl around the jar creating beautiful op-art imagery. The rim of the jar is sculptured with three pieces of clay and a fineline bird wing pattern. Shana said that this meant to represent the birds over the kivas. It is striking how she is able to combine such traditional imagery with such a modern appearance!
