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.
Pascagoula was fashioned from a piece of copper and wood (gutter? something from a structure) which I found on the lot of my friends Will and Lee. I paired it with a silver platter and a carved and painted duck. The name comes from a river on the coast-very much in my mind recently because of a a fundraiser I organized for the Pascagoula River Audubon Center. The BP oil spill has affected all of us down here-and will be affecting everyone else in the country, whether they know it or not.
