Forest Stories

I have just donated the artists' book "Fire Stories" to the Animas Museum of the La Plata Historical Society in Durango, Colorado. The book with slate covers holds personal stories and remembrances written by area residents about the Missionary Ridge Fire of 2002, a major fire event in Durango. The stories are written on photocopied topo maps of the fire areas and are unbound, being held by the slate "envelope". Pages between the written stories hold red prismacolor drawing. Pit-fired clay shards embelish the slate front cover.
