$ 400.00

Denny Gutierrez was known for his faceted melon bowls.  As opposed to carving them, he would flatten out each rib to create a “faceted” appearance.  The result was a reflective surface and a very striking piece of pottery.  This bowl has a round shoulder that perfectly shows the precision and the thin lines of each of the 42 faceted swirls.  The swirl from the rim to the base.  The bowl is from 1997.  The narrowness of each rib adds to the amazing reflectiveness of this piece.  The bowl is very highly polished and it is in excellent condition with no chips, cracks, restoration or repair.  It is signed on the bottom, “Denny Gutierrez”.
