Gutierrez, Denny – Wide Jar with 30 Feathers (1994)
Denny Gutierrez was known for his faceted melon bowls. However, he also created exceptional painted vessels. This jar has a wide, sharp shoulder and a sloping neck. It is fully polished and painted with very tightly painted feathers. There are 30 feathers encircling the jar. Note how they are painted at a slight angle. In four sections there are delicately painted rain and cloud designs. The jar is polished to a glossy shine. It is from 1994. It is in excellent condition with no chips, cracks, restoration, or repair. It is signed on the bottom in the clay, “Denny Gutierrez”.
