The pottery exhibited here supports the interest of galleries and collectors with its perfect form, finish and superb, crisp black graphics. Garcia grew up on the Santo Domingo Pueblo reservation watching and helping his grandmother gather the clay and sand to mix. His pottery is shown in several high-end galleries in Santa Fe, NM, including one of the premiere pottery stores in America, Andrea Fisher Fine Pottery galleries in Santa Fe, NM. Micaceous clay is a clay that naturally contains a high proportion of mica which reflects light. Mica is a great natural conductor of heat & as a result, allows micaceous cookware to hold heat extremely well. Native Americans have used this type of clay for over 1000 years.Mark's work is referenced in "Southern Pueblo Pottery: 2000 Artist Biographies" by Gregory Schaaf , Berger & Schiffer's "Pueblo & Navajo Contemporary Pottery" and "Southwestern Pottery: Anasazi to Zuni" by Allen Hayes and John Blom.RETURN POLICY WITHIN 3 DAYS OF RECEIPT, BUYER PAYS FOR SHIPPING.Free shipping!!
