Artist Profiles: Kate MacDowell

Kate MacDowell has not only traveled around the world for inspiration, but has also studied at a variety of institutions in Oregon and North Carolina. She states that her work is “in part responses to environmental stressors including climate change, toxic pollution, and gm crops.” Each piece is hand sculpted out of porcelain. Every little detail is made piece by piece and then added to the final form. The finished works are stunning. A few of the sculptures have been fitted to be lit from the inside. It looks great in the photos, but I am sure it is an exciting effect when seen up close.

Head on over and see the rest of her work: Kate MacDowell Portfolio
