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.
