About The Artist

Signing their pottery “Lela & Luther,” Luther is the son of Lela & Van Gutierrez and the brother of Margaret Gutierrez. He is the father of Pauline Gutierrez Naranjo. Luther collaborated with his sister, Margaret Gutierrez and his mother, Lela Gutierrez.

Notes from Al Hayes Co-Author Southwestern Pottery Anasazi to Zuni:

After Van died, Lela’s son Luther took over the painting chores, and later when Lela stopped potting. Margaret stepped in for her mother. This is from that second period.
