Tammy Garcia

Tammy Garcia is one of the most acclaimed artists of Santa Clara Pueblo, famous for her smoothly polished, deeply carved black ware that often incorporates the sacred image and classic design of Avanyu. Metamorphosis also describes her work as it has developed through time into sculptural iconography.

Garcia’s work is exemplified in this singular bronze sculpture, “Avanyu” now available at Chimayo Trading. The artist chose bronze to represent this ornate interpretive carving because it is timeless, and it blurs boundaries, expands the definitions and combines the aesthetics of Native American Art in the name of Avanyu, and of Tammy Garcia.

The royal bloodline of Tammy Garcia includes her mother, Linda Cain and grandmother Mary Cain who conveyed a generational legacy that has made Tammy one of the most renowned living Pueblo artists of our time. Her immutable spirit lives in this piece and is available now in our spacious adobe gallery to add to your collection.
