Kate MacDowell creates the most stunning sculptures with porcelain, discovering that the “romantic ideal of union with the natural world conflicts with our contemporary impact on the environment.”
Also? I like to think there’s a koala directing my brain, too.
oh! i love the hands one!
holy wow!! those are gorgeous and thought provoking. smart art, i like.
I’m a big fan of her work… she really does some amazing stuff. And I had an awesome dream about having a pet koala the other day – makes me love that piece even more!
omg a pet koala? i LOVE it!
These are beautiful
ooh, love the birds in the lungs!
A bit eerie, but so lovely. And did you know, the koala bear is the mascot of Columbia College (girl school, Columbia, SC)? Yep.
very cool! I feel like there’s something light + sweet about these. hmm, maybe it’s the white + texture?
wow INCREDIBLE. the birdcage in your soul song is now stuck in my head…
I am going to set the year 9 sculpture students a task to critique Kate’s amazing sculpture: ‘bird lungs’, I will keep you posted with thier interpretations
What wonderful work! I also use ceramics as a medium and I am amazed at the different thicknesses incorporated in your sculptures. You must have a magical gift to prevent them cracking during drying and firing time. May I ask, what’s the secret?
You have quite elegant lines within your sculptures. I really appreciate the subtle delicacy that you have imparted on them as well. Unfortunately, a discrepancy appeared to me: why is an ear attached to the brain? This is anatomically awkward, and although I love the level of detail you have instilled in your work, I can’t seem to focus on anything more with that piece.
