Availability: In stock

This water jar by Virginia Garcia is a classic shape for Santa Clara pottery.  The jar has a shape inspired by the storage jar with a round body but there is a sharp shoulder before it extends up to the neck.  There are three bear paws as the design, which are impressed into the clay.  The entire jar is fully polished and fired a black coloration.   Virginia is a sister of noted potters Tina Garcia and Greg Garcia.   While Virginia is no longer making pottery, this is certainly an outstanding example of her skill.  It is in excellent condition with no chips, cracks, restoration or repair.  It is signed on the bottom in the clay, ‘Virginia Garcia”.

Garica, Virginia (b. 1963)

Virginia is a sister of noted potters Tina and Greg Garcia. She is a daughter of Lydia Tafoya and a granddaughter of Severa Tafoya. She is also an aunt of Jason Garcia. Virginia is known for her traditional style of pottery focusing on classic Santa Clara shapes. She also created a distinctive "plum" color in her pottery in the late 1990's. This coloration was created through her firing technique. Today, she no longer makes pottery but her work is still classic in form and style!
