Diana Lewis Garcia Seed Pot
Tell A Friend
A specialist in handmade seed jars, Diana Lewis Garcia of the Acoma Pueblo made this Seed Pot by hand-coiling its shape. She then painted the intricate design with natural pigments (gathered from within the Acoma Pueblo) with a brush fashioned from a yucca plant. A one-of-a-kind artwork, this exquisite, outdoor-fired Diana Lewis Garcia Seed Pot beautifully represents ancient Acoma pottery traditions. Handcrafted in New Mexico.
For centuries, seed pots, or jars, like this Diana Lewis Garcia Seed Pot were used to store seeds for future plantings. Several seed jars handcrafted by Acoma Pueblo artisans reside in the collections of our National Museum of the American Indian.
