3"w x 2.75"h

$ 1,200.00

This is a very unusual small jar by Tammy Garcia from 1991.  Instead of being deeply carved, it is painted black-on-black.  What is interesting is that it is painted in the style of her complex, deeply carved pieces of the same time.  The jar is fully polished then painted and the avanyu encircles the piece.  It is striking and unusual early work from her.  It is in excellent condition with no chips, cracks, restoration or repair.  It is signed on the bottom in the clay, “Tammy Borts Garcia”.  It is definitely a classic of her pottery art!
