Sibling artists Margaret and Luther Gutierrez worked together continuing the polychrome pottery style of painting begun by their parents.  No other family of potters at Santa Clara Pueblo used the mixture of natural colors in their pottery, colors ranging from tan, red, green, blue, gold, black and white, all obtained from natural pigments.  Sometimes their work is whimsical and other times it is most elegant.

Margaret Gutierrez (1936-2018) and Luther Gutierrez (1911-1987) were the children of Lela and Van Gutierrez.
