Gutierrez, Denny – Bowl with 33 Feathers (1986)
Denny Gutierrez was known for his faceted melon bowls. However, he also created exceptional painted vessels. This bowl has a sharp shoulder that slopes to the rim. It is fully polished and painted with very tightly painted feathers. There are 33 feathers encircling the jar. Note how they are painted at a slight angle. The bowl is polished to a glossy shine. It is from 1991. It is in excellent condition with no chips, cracks, restoration, or repair. It is signed on the bottom in the clay, “Denny Gutierrez”.
