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.
Niche Saint starts with a terra cotta image of the Virgin of Guadalupe. I paired it with the door to a jewelry cabinet, a mosaic-style glass picture frame, a decorative trifold door, old coin, wood poker chips, and milagros. When I placed it in the battered wood box, it immediately made me feel as though I was in one of the old Spanish churches of the southwest.
