Garcia, Tina – Red Water Jar with Fluted Rim (1991)

Garcia, Tina – Red Water Jar with Fluted Rim (1991)

5"w x 5.5"h

Tina Garcia was well known for her focus on traditional shape and plainware Santa Clara pottery. This water jar is classic in both form and color.  The jar has a sharp shoulder which dips down before extending up to the neck.  It is this indention at the shoulder, which is difficult at times to see in photos but easy to feel, which was a distinctive technique of Tina’s pottery.  The result is often the “surprise” of feeling it when it is not really seen.  The rim is fluted which means that it is undulating.  This is always a more difficult technique as there are more opportunities for it to crack in drying or polishing.  The jar is fully polished and traditionally fired red.  It is signed on the bottom in the clay.  It is in excellent condition with no chips, cracks, restoration or repair.
