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 bowl is from 1992. It is larger in size and there are 36 faceted ribs swirling around the jar from the rim to the base. The bowl is very highly polished and fired a dark black.  It is signed on the bottom in the clay, “Denny Gutierrez”.
