Artist Denny Gutierrez made a slight modification to placement of the feather design from that seen by most potters from Santa Clara and San Ildefonso.  He placed the feathers at a slight variant from perfectly straight up and down—that is they are slightly angled. He also added stepped designs and small dots between the feather band and the neck of the jar as well as inverted spikes pendant from the bottom of the feather design.  The jar was beautifully burnished and perfectly fired. It is signed Denny Gutierrez Santa Clara and dated ’86.
