SCROLL DOWN TO SEE THE NEW "PORTALS" BODY OF WORK!
The Katrina Collection is a series of mixed media assemblages which incorporate storm debris from Hurricanes Katrina and Gustav. There are approximately 1000 pieces in the collection to date, so most of the pieces are in the archives, located on the right hand side of the poage-just scroll down a little bit.
Elixer of Life was created from a wood box from which I salvaged the lid for another piece. A different lid has been attached and is hinged to the box. On the front I adhered a New Mexico license plate, a paper mache platter, and a carved wood figure. On the inside, there is a primitive cloth crow, a cast of an fossilized ammonite, several fragments of my jewelry (post Katrina) and a page from "Elixer of Life" by Alexandre Dumas. SOLD
