Handmade Porcelain Sculptures by Kate MacDowell

Published Aug 29, 2014

American artist Kate MacDowell creates beautifully bizarre handcrafted porcelain sculptures.

“I hand sculpt each piece out of porcelain, often building a solid form and then hollowing it out. Smaller forms are built petal by petal, branch by branch and allow me the chance to get immersed in close study of the structure of a blossom or a bee. I chose porcelain for its luminous and ghostly qualities as well as its strength and ability to show fine texture.”

– Kate MacDowell
