Wow is an understatement. These GORGEOUS porcelain sculptures were hand crafted by sculptor Kate MacDowell. I highly recommend checking out her whole collection on her site. It’s amazing, I wanted to post so many images but I limited myself to just these four! Her work is witty and telling and all beautiful.

In my work [the] romantic ideal of union with the natural world conflicts with our contemporary impact on the environment.  These pieces are in part responses to environmental stressors including climate change, toxic pollution, and gm crops.  They also borrow from myth, art history, figures of speech and other cultural touchstones… In each case the union between man and nature is shown to be one of friction and discomfort with the disturbing implication that we too are vulnerable to being victimized by our destructive practices.

Well said, and well done!
