Garcia, Tina – Wide Jar with Short Neck (1984)
Tina Garcia was well known for her focus on traditional shape and plainware Santa Clara pottery. This is an elegant shape with a wide shoulder and a short neck. The jar is fully polished to a glassy appearance. The piece is fired a deep black. It was certainly typical of Tina to focus on such elegant shapes and create pieces that are so thin-walled. It is signed on the bottom in the clay, “Tina Garcia”. It is in excellent condition with no chips, cracks, restoration or repair.
