Gerri “Gachupin” Daubs was born in 1935 into the small but active pueblo of Jemez, New Mexico. She is a member of the Eagle Clan, which was passed down from her mother, Alcira Gachupin. Early schooling brought Gerri in contact with Al Momaday, Kiowa artist and teacher. Momaday nurtured young Gerri. Natural talent guided her art and design in the early years. Gerri’s grandmother, Maria Sanchez-Colaque, was from the San Ildefonso pueblo and first cousins to Maria Martinez, the famous master of the black San Ildefonso pottery. Gerri’s grandmother gave her the hands on experience of working with natural clay. She taught her the fundamentals of hand coiling pottery using ancient traditional methods in the process, which was passed down to her from her ancestors.
Gerri’s work is exhibited in Red River and Raton, New Mexico. She also participates in several art shows throughout Arizona.
