Gutierrez, Denny – Small Water Jar with 30 Feathers (1991)
Denny Gutierrez was known for his faceted melon bowls. However, he also created exceptional painted vessels. This jar has a low, sharp shoulder and an elongated neck. The feathers are tightly painted around the neck of the jar. The remainder is fully polished to a glassy black. It is a creative use of form and design. The polished surface has a mirror-like appearance. It is from 1991. It is in excellent condition with no chips, cracks, restoration, or repair. It is signed on the bottom in the clay, “Denny Gutierrez”.
