$ 700.00

This owl figure by Margaret and Luther Gutierrez is a classic of their style.  They are always whimsical.  This piece is coil-built, like a jar.  There are wings and it is painted with natural clay slips. There are cloud designs on the front and painted designs on the head and eyes.  Each one is always distinctive.  Typically Margaret would have made the piece and Luther, her brother, would have painted it.  This is an intricately painted owl with a lot of colors.  It is in excellent condition with no chips, cracks, restoration or repair.  It is signed on the bottom, “Margaret/Luther”.
