Luz Elva Gutierrez

Married to Mata Ortiz potter Vidal Corona, Luz Elva Gutierrez is also a potter in Mata Ortiz. She seems to specialize in painting hummingbirds, flowers, rabbits and nature designs on small vases. I've seen a few lidded jars by Luz Elva with lids sculpted and painted to look like hummingbirds in flight. She's also made some squarish jars with different geometric openings and designs.
