Gutierrez, Denny – Large Bowl with 52 Feathers (1987)
Denny Gutierrez was known for his faceted melon bowls. However, he also created exceptional painted vessels. This large bowl is fully polished and has very tightly painted feathers. There are 52 feathers encircling the bowl. Note how they are each at a slight angle. The surface has glossy shine from the stone burnishing and firing. 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”.
