Gutierrez, Denny – Jar with 16 Straight Faceted Ribs (1990)
Denny Gutierrez was known for his faceted melon bowls. This piece has 16 straight ribs that extend from the rim to the shoulder. They are very flat and the sharp shoulder and the faceted ribs are very striking on this jar! I think, for once the photos really capture the highly polished surface and the angle of the facets (except for the few fingerprints I missed!). The light definitely reflects the various surface angles. The jar is polished to a glossy shine. It is from 1990. It is in excellent condition with no chips, cracks, restoration, or repair. It is signed on the bottom in the clay, “Denny Gutierrez”.
