Gutierrez, Denny – Jar with 48 Feathers (1986)
Denny Gutierrez was known for his faceted melon bowls. However, he also created exceptional painted vessels. This long neck jar is fully polished and painted with very tightly painted feathers. There are 48 feathers encircling the bowl. Note how they are painted at a slight angle. In four sections there are rain designs that extend upward to the neck. The jar is polished to a glossy shine. It is from 1986. It is in excellent condition with no chips, cracks, restoration, or repair. It is signed on the bottom in the clay, “Denny Gutierrez”.
