Lela & Van Gutierrez
Santa Clara

Polychrome Jar

9" total height

Famed Pueblo potters, Lela Naranjo Gutierrez (1895-1966) and her husband Van (c1870-1956) tested many ideas in pottery making, but only when they developed a decorative scheme featuring earth colors on a matte background did they achieve one, which was an enduring success.

Bold curvilinear designs on a neutral tan or beige became the base for a new Santa Clara style.

Their children Margaret and Luther carried on the tradition.
