Gutierrez, Margaret Lou Roybal – Jar with Cloud and Feather Designs
Margaret Lou Gutierrez was the only daughter of noted potters Tonita & Juan Roybal. She began making pottery in the 1970s and this is one of her pieces from the 1990s. This is a larger jar which is fully polished. It has a low shoulder and a short neck. The design is a cloud, rain and feather motif which encircles the piece. It is unusual how she used the negative space to create the lower section of her designs. 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”.
