Gutierrez, Denny – Jar with 30 Feathers (1991)
Denny Gutierrez was known for his faceted melon bowls. However, he also created exceptional painted vessels. This jar has a sloping shoulder which is painted with 30 feathers. They are very tightly painted for the size of the jar. Note how extending upward from some of the feathers are both mountain and rain designs. Note how they are painted at a slight angle. The jar 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”.
