Barbara is a talented potter and an extension of her famous great-grandmother, Maria Martinez. She personalizes her pottery that she describes as "slipped-designed polychrome" with inlaid coral and turquoise on etched black and sienna wares, often inlaid on spider designs.

Cavan Gonzalez is a leader in the polychrome revival at San Ildefonso Pueblo. He comes from a long line of distinguised Native American potters starting with his great-great-grandmother, Maria Martinez. He works using traditional methods, though his designs are inspired by both past and present day life.
