Gutierrez, Denny – Large Bowl with 42 Feathers and Snow Designs (1988)
This is one of the more complex larger feather designs bowls by Denny Gutierrez we have had in the gallery. Denny was known for his faceted melon bowls. However, he also created exceptional painted vessels. This large bowl is fully polished and painted with very tightly painted feathers in two sections. There are a total of 42 feathers. They are separated by sections with snow designs. Around the neck are cloud patterns extending up to the rim. Note how they are painted at a slight angle. 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”.
