Garcia, Virginia – Large Black Water Jar (1990)
This water jar by Virginia Garcia is a classic shape for Santa Clara pottery. The jar has a round shoulder with a sharp edge which dips down slightly and then extends up towards the neck. The piece is highly 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”.
