Doug & Charlotte Vigil were both born in 1954 and have been making pottery since 1977. They gather the clay from the San Ildefonso Reservation and fire all of their pottery outdoors. Doug does the painting and Charlotte does the stone polishing. They were taught by Doug's parents Albert & Josephine Vigil. They are one of the few potters from San Ildefonso that specialize in Cream on Red pottery. Doug's grandmother, Juanita Montoya was the sister of Maria Martinez.
