Gutierrez, Denny – Jar with 44 Feathers (1987)
Denny Gutierrez was known for his faceted melon bowls. However, he also created exceptional painted vessels. This jar has a round shoulder and an elongated neck neck. It is fully polished and painted with very tightly painted feathers. There are 44 feathers encircling the jar. Note how they are painted at a slight angle. Above the feathers are both rain and prayer feather designs. The jar is polished to a glossy shine. It is from 1987. It is in excellent condition with no chips, cracks, restoration, or repair. It is signed on the bottom in the clay, “Denny Gutierrez”.
