Gutierrez, Denny – 16 Rounded Straight Rib Jar (1990)
Denny Gutierrez was known for his faceted melon bowls. There is a beautiful elegance to both his shapes and the simplicity of his melon rib designs. As opposed to carving them, he would flatten out each rib out to create a “faceted” appearance. The result was a reflective surface for each rib and also the space between. They create a very striking piece of pottery. This jar has 16 rounded straight ribs extending from the neck to the base. The jar is from 1990. 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”.
