Polychrome Jar
Polychrome Plate
Polychrome Jar (#22)

The inspiration for this striking jar or olla is 1920s Acoma pottery. But here the designs are re-combined and used in repeated patterns over the entirety of the pot’s surface. The use of more difficult to use orange paint demonstrates Garcia’s highly developed pottery skills.
