Garcia, Tina – Sharp Shoulder Water Jar (1980s)

6.5"w x 6"h

$ 900.00

Tina Garcia was well known for her focus on traditional shapes and plainware Santa Clara pottery. This is a classic water jar with a sharp shoulder.  What is hard to see in the photos, is that the jar comes to a sharp edge at the shoulder and then dips downward as it extends up to the rim.  The jar is highly polished and fired to a glassy black.  Tina was continually inspired by historic Santa Clara pottery.  The jar was traditionally fired and is a deep red coloration.  It is signed on the back in the clay, “Tina Garcia”.  It is in excellent condition with no chips, cracks, restoration, or repair.
