Scott Ortman will speak about and sign his new book, Painted Reflections: Isomeric Design in Ancestral Pueblo Pottery, on Wednesday, January 22nd at 7:30pm.
About the Book:
Painted Reflections examines isomeric design in Ancestral Pueblo pottery from museum collections in the Southwest. The concept of isomeric design is based on an analogy with isomers in chemistry, which refers to compounds that are chemically identical but have mirror-image structures. The authors use isomeric design to describe the use of paired forms that can be perceived as reversible on painted pottery. This book provides a new perspective on Pueblo art and culture.
