Santa Clara Pueblo artists Lois and Derek Gutierrez de la Cruz work together producing beautiful polychrome pottery jars decorated in a multitude of design elements. They each make their own pottery and fire jointly.
The Gutierrez family was one of the 14 families who settled in the pueblo in 1934. Lois Gutierrez is a descendant of that family, with roots from Santa Clara Pueblo. Lois Gutierrez married Derek de la Cruz. She comes from a family of talented potters—her mother, Petra, and her sisters, Goldenrod (Gloria Garcia) , Thelma Talachy, Lupita Gutierrez and Minnie Vigil all are recognized artisans.
