Availability: Out of stock

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 is narrow in shape, which shows off the faceted swirling ribs.  It is from 1997.  The jar has 26 faceted ribs swirling down from the rim to the base.   The narrowness of each rib adds to the amazing reflectiveness of this piece.  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.
