The late, well-known potter, Helen Gutierrez was from San Ildefonso Pueblo and married into the Santa Clara Pueblo. After her marriage, Helen continued to pot in the traditional San Ildefonso style and always signed her potter as "San Ildefonso."

Her daughters, Carol and Kathy, continue to do the same, both to reflect their heritage, and the fact that their pottery is styles as the classic San Ildefonso. Carol works full-time at the Los Alamos National Laboratory. Art runs in the family, their uncle is Gilbert Atencio, a noted painter.
