Daniel died in December 1921 but the workshop continued leaded by and with great efforts of his son and daughters Juan, Esperanza and Teodora, its art craft was outstanding during the twenties and thirties. They went to many international fairs and exhibitions. It is in the 30s when Juan and Daniel Zuloaga Olalla, sons of Juan, initiated their training and help in the workshop.
       If the first quarter of the century was of economic stability and growth, like with many other things, the Civil War meant the commercial decline of the workshop and nothing would ever be the same in Spain. With Second World War international relations dropped and in 1947 to enable preserving the artistic legacy of the workshop, the church San Juan de los Caballeros was sold to the government who acknowledged it as Museum and Daniel Zuloaga´s Ceramic School.
      In 1951, in the middle of the economic crisis, Fernando Arranz (old pupil of Daniel Zuloaga Boneta) claimed Juan and his son Daniel Zuloaga Olalla to leave for Argentina to set up and direct the school of ceramics in Mar del Plata, but Juan was ill and soon returned to Segovia where he died in 1968; his sisters Esperanza and Candida and his son Juan had died long ago. In the meantime here, the school ended closing in the middle of the 50s and the ceramic production was stopped.
