Extended Description
Gary is the son of Dorothy and Paul Gutierrez who are well known for their mudheads, animals and nativity sets. Gary also makes figuritive pottery but in a larger scale. He does very fine human figures that are well formed and beautifully polished. His figures always have difficult and complex surfaces to polish so Gary uses pencil-shaped stalagtites as polishing stones. The finish he achieves using these stones is truly remarkable. Gary used to pot part-time only (at one time playing in a Los Angeles rock band and returning to Santa Clara to fire) but due to the increased demand for his work he moved to Santa Fe and now pots full-time. He also makes wonderful nativity sets.
