Book Signing "The Couse Collection of Pueblo Pottery" E. Jane Burns

Luna Chapel | Couse-Sharp Historic Site | 146 Kit Carson Rd, Taos, NM

Book signing by author E. Jane Burns of Volume Two of The Record.  The book provides a unique view of the Pueblo pots collected by artist E.I. Couse specifically for use in his paintings.  Full-page color photos with captions detail roughly 70 of the largest pots in the Collection, many of which are also shown in previously unpublished photo studies made by Couse.  The photo studies document the artist's abiding interest in the creative processes of pueblo pottery and show how Couse staged Native pottery making for his paintings.  The book also shows ceramic tiles embedded in the fireplaces, walls and bancos of the Couse home.  A complete inventory of all pots in the Collection, including smaller pieces and miniatures is provided.
