Virginia Gutierrez is from Nambe Pueblo and has not produced any new work since the 90s. She was an active potter beginning in the 1970s working with polychrome seedpots, jars and was particularly known for her plates. She is the sister of Marie Herrera and Emiliana Gadd Vigil; sister-in-law to  Minnie Vigil, Lois Gutierrez, Thelma Talachy and Gloria 'Goldenrod' Garcia.

At left is one of Virginia's highly coveted plates measuring 11.5 inches in diameter and an inch high. The circumference is micaceous slip and a small smoke cloud on the back speaks to its traditional creation using pit firing - a very difficult process in creating a plate. This is the Nambe equal to a Maria Martinez plate. Your price $1,800 ~ Item MP260. Click here for an enlargement.  Includes Shipping!

Virginia exhibited regularly at the Santa Fe Indian Market and her work is now mostly seen in collections throughout the country. It is very rare to see her pottery for sale on the open market. All her work was handcoiled, pit fired and hand painted with natural pigments. Dr. Gregory Schaaf mentions Virginia and Robert Vigil as the two prominent potters of Nambe as the tradition has come down to the few. He further states in his book "Pueblo Indian Pottery: 750 Artist Biographies" (printed in 2000) "Today, Nambe pottery remains rare. Few pieces have come up for auction in the past 20 years" Her work and interviews are in included in Stephen Trimble's "Talking with the Clay", Dr. Gregory Schaaf's "Pueblo Indian Pottery 750 Artist Biographies"; and "Southwestern Pottery: Anasazi to Zuni" by Hayes & Blom.

This pot represents a very rare opportunity to add work by a celebrated Nambe potter to your collection.

Harrison Begaye was born in 1961 in the small Navajo town of Jeddito near Keams Canyon, Arizona. In college he trained as a painter but after marrying a Santa Clara woman and moving to Santa Clara Pueblo, he was taught to pot by his mother-in-law. Harrison's pottery is Santa Claran in construction and firing techniques, but he incorporates symbolism from many Indian cultures in his designs. Aside from his ex-mother in law, Marcia Padilla, he also credits help and advice from Jody Naranjo, the Folwell family, Isabelle and Eugene Naranjo and Lincoln and Judy Tafoya.
