“CHILDREN OF WHITNEY” statues by artist Woodrow Nash, of Akron, Ohio, seem to haunt the chapel at Whitney Plantation near Wallace. Nash incorporates various styles and techniques utilizing stoneware, earthenware, terracotta or porcelain. The work is fired electronically, pit fired or via a “raku” effect - creating an “African Nuveau” trademark that’s solely his own. (Whitney Plantation photo)
