The Porcelain Sculptures of Kate MacDowell

Portland artist Kate Macdowell sculpts these porcelain figures of humanity and nature intersecting to create beautiful and surreal hybrid forms that have been dissected to expose the bizarre anatomical details within, such as human skeletons inside animals and organs with plants growing from them or insects crawling on them.

Her work is fantastic, even though it is somewhat disturbing. It raises questions in the mind of the viewer, and intrigues with its reality. I’d love to see the actual pieces!
