Gutierrez, Margaret Lou – Large Jar with Feather and Hatchwork Designs (1990’s)
Margaret Lou Gutierrez was the only daughter of noted potters Tonita & Juan Roybal. She began making pottery in the 1970’s and this is one of her pieces from the 1990’s. This is a larger jar which is fully polished and painted around the shoulder. The painted designs are variations of feather, cloud and hatch-work designs. It is a very complex pattern which includes the very elongated feathers for which she is famous. The hatchwork imagery is also very reminiscent of the painting style of her father, Juan Cruz. The jar is in excellent condition with no chips, cracks, restoration or repair. It is signed on the bottom in the clay, “Margaret Lou Gutierrez”. It is hard to see the signature in the photo, but it is clear on the piece.
