There are many fine potters in the various branches of the Gutierrez family at Santa Clara and San Ildefonso Pueblos, and it looks as if the gift is continuing into a new generation, judging by this elegant brontosaurus. Young boys love dinosaurs, and this brontosaurus was lovingly observed. It is also stone-polished to a gorgeous sheen. In fact, this young man was awarded two prize ribbons at the Youth Division of Santa Fe Indian Market – one when he was only 7 years old, and one when the potter was a more mature 10-year-old! It seems certain that this young artist will have a very notable career in pottery.
