Denny Gutierrez was known for his faceted melon bowls. However, he also created exceptional painted vessels. This jar has a low shoulder and sloping sides. It has 36 feathers painted onto the polished surface. Note how they are painted at a slight angle. Above the feathers are terraced cloud and rain patterns. The bowl is polished to a glossy shine. It is from 1988. It is in excellent condition with no chips, cracks, restoration, or repair. It is signed on the bottom in the clay, “Denny Gutierrez”.
