Tina Garcia was well known for her focus on traditional shape and plainware Santa Clara pottery. This is one of the few melon bowls which we have seen of her work.  The bowl is deeply carved with “melon” ridges extending from the neck to the base.  The entire piece is fully polished and fired a deep black.   Tina was always focused on form and polish and this created some exceptional vessels.  It is signed on the bottom in the clay.  It is in excellent condition with no chips, cracks, restoration or repair.  It is signed on the bottom in the clay, “Tina Garcia”.
