Goldenrod specializes in hand coiled and sgraffito seed jars. She hand polishes and hand etches her designs without the use of any stencils. Her work features a variety of designs such as horses, buffalo, corn maidens, Avanyu (serpent believed to protect Pueblo people), butterflies, rain clouds, deer, bear, bear paws and redwing blackbirds. Goldenrod completes her masterpieces by offering a traditional outdoor firing. She signs her pottery: Goldenrod. She is related to John Garcia (husband), Jason Garcia, John David Garcia, Jr (sons) and Petra Gutierrez (mother).
