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.
Morning Song was created from a stand which has a series of unknown symbols carved into its surface, a lump of paperclay, a heavily damaged nautilus shell which I had used in my collage workshops, and a carved wood figure of the bird. I was particularly intrigued with the repetition of shapes in this piece, and happy to find a fitting home for my nautilus shell, which had served me well.
