Enver Karagoz of Gulfport, left, shows Katrina Research Center historian and exhibit coordinator Deanne Nuwer the wood detail of one of his carved Katrina bowls. After hearing about The University of Southern Mississippi Katrina Research Center, Karagoz donated two of his bowls to the center’s growing art collection.

Karagoz, who collected wood from fallen trees after Hurricane Katrina, uses a wood turning machine to carve beautifully designed bowls. The two donated bowls were carved from a red oak tree in Gulfport and a pecan tree in Long Beach. The Katrina Research Center, which is open to the community, is located on the third floor of the library on the Southern Miss Gulf Park campus in Long Beach.
