About The Worried Creature

Its pointed snout and longish tail could denote an armadillo.  His back is decorated with a familiar Santa Clara design of polychrome bear claws.

About Margaret and Luther Gutierrez

The children of Lela and Van Gutierrez, Margaret (Born 1936) and Luther (1911-1987) (sister and brother) were known for their intricate designs, applied using a wide range of colors against a tan background color.

Polishing the surfaces with a rag rather than a stone yields a silky feel to their pots and whimsical animal figures.
