Pair Golden Rod Gloria Garcia Native American Pottery Sgrafitto Seed Jars For Sale
Pair Golden Rod Gloria Garcia Native American Pottery Sgrafitto Seed Jars
Gloria “Goldendrod” Garcia is a full blooded Native American Indian. She was born in 1942 into the Santa Clara Pueblo. She was taught all the fundamentals of constructing pottery vessels using the ancient traditional way by members of her Pueblo .
Goldenrod specializes in hand coiled and sgrafitto seed jars. She gathers her raw clumps of clay, volcanic ash, and natural vegetation from within the Santa Clara Pueblo. She breaks down the clumps of clay and the volcanic ash into a fine powder form and hand mixes it with water to produce a fine medium, once that has been obtained she begins rolling the clay out into long snake like coils and begins hand building her vessels, once the pottery has taken form it is set out to dry. When the pottery has dried she sands each piece by hand to smooth out any rough edges. She hand polishes and hand etches her designs without any stencils. Her designs range in a wide variety of horses, buffalo, corn maidens, Avanyu (serpent believed to protect Pueblo People), butterflies, rain clouds, deer, bears, bear paws, and redwing blackbirds. Goldenrod completes her masterpieces by offering a traditional outdoor firing. She signs her pottery as: Goldendrod. She is related to: John Garcia (husband), Jason Garcia, John David Garcia, Jr. (sons), and Petra Gutierrez (mother).This sale is for 2 pieces of Goldenrod pottery.
