Published by The Couse Foundation, 2017
Volume Two of The Record
Softcover, 132 pages, 7 x 9
122 color photos, 19 B&W photos

The Couse Collection of Pueblo Pottery provides a unique view of the pottery collected by E. I. Couse, founding member of the Taos Society of Artists, many of which appear in his paintings. Couse’s photo studies of Native American models posed among Native pots are an organizing principle for the book.

Large color photos with informative captions detail more than 70 of the largest pots in the Collection, many of which are also shown in previously unpublished photo studies made by Couse.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 in his paintings. The book also shows Pueblo Pottery and Tesuque tiles incorporated into the architecture of the house. A complete inventory of all pots in the collection, including smaller pieces and miniatures, is included.
