Kate MacDowell's sculpture style is a striking mix of human anatomy and nature. She attributes her stunning artwork to be a reflection of how she perceives her world working and living in diverse environments. Each piece is sculpted by hand from porcelain which presents a luminous and ghostly quality. Some pieces are lit up which adds to the effect.

Implications - These extraordinary pieces of porcelain art are primarily influence by the ever changing relationship between man and nature. Borrowing from the way this relationship has been culturally represented over time through myth, history and other mediums, MacDowell's pieces address the conflict between our natural relationship to the world and the way we treat it in modern society.
