Gutierrez, Denny – Large 16 Straight Rib Melon Bowl (1988)
Denny Gutierrez was known for his faceted melon bowls. This is one of the few classic style melon jars I have seen of his work in this size. There are 16 rounded melon ribs that extend from the rim to the base. The entire piece is fully polished to a glossy shine. It was fired a deep black. The jar 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”.
