Gutierrez, Denny – 16 Faceted Straight Rib Jar (1991)
Denny Gutierrez was known for his faceted melon bowls. As opposed to carving them, he would flatten out each rib out to create a “faceted” appearance. The result was a reflective surface and a very striking piece of pottery. This jar has 16 faceted ribs extending from the neck to the base. It has a very sharp shoulder which then turns up towards the rim. The jar is from 1991. The jar is very highly polished and it is in excellent condition with no chips, cracks, restoration or repair. It is signed on the bottom in the clay, “Denny Gutierrez”.
