Found this today at a local thrift shop.Paid one dollar.
From what i can find ,the artist was from Santa Clara,New Mexico.
She was a member of the Pueblo tribe.Any other info would be great.

Mystery Solved

    Great find!

    Just in the interest of accuracy, though, there is no "Pueblo" tribe. There are 19 separate and independent tribes in New Mexico (Santa Clara is one of them), plus Isleta del Sur in Texas and the Hopi in New Mexico, that come under the designation of "pueblo," but each is a separate sovereign nation/tribe. If the potter signs "Santa Clara," it means Santa Clara Pueblo is the tribal affiliation.

    The spelling of the potter's last name is "Gutierrez." Also known as Geneveve Tafoya, listed in such in Gregory Schaaf's "Pueblo Indian Pottery, 750 Artist Biographies."
