Garcia, Tammy – “Gold Moth” Bronze, 17/35
Tammy Garcia is known for her amazing pottery, as well as the creativity of her bronzes. This bronze is carved in the style she carves in her pottery, with various depths and layers. It is entitled, “Gold Moth”. It has a Sikyatki inspired moth as the design in relief. Behind the moth are some of her classic Pueblo geometric designs and a leaf pattern around the edge as the “frame”. The bronze is made to hang on a wall, although it can also stand (or sit in an easel). The piece has a striking use of patinas to enhance the coloration of the moth’s wings and the plants in the frame. The piece is signed on the side. It is the 17/35 in the edition of the bronze.
