Gary specializes in hand making what he calls Anasazi figurines. He said, “To me they represent a time, when life was simple and balanced in this world.” Gary’s favorite one’s to mold are the figures that hold the pottery. Gary signs his pottery as: Gary Gutierrez, Santa Clara, followed by the month and year they were sculpted.
