Lori K. Gordon’s Katrina Collection is composed of the rubble of her life. Gordon constructs art from the mounds of debris that covered her property, often using polymer clay to unify or embellish her pieces.
“I lost my home and studio in Clermont Harbor, Mississippi to a 35 foot wall of water and 150 mile per hour winds. In both a literal and a metaphorical sense, this series is composed of pieces of the storm,” says Gordon. The site requires some scrolling to capture the impact of this powerful story.
This link was sent by Lindly Haunani who’s recovering from her own natural disaster – a fall on the ice. Perhaps she’s taking comfort in Gordon’s story of healing after the storm. Be sure to send Lindly some merry wishes this holiday season.
