Hand carved porcelain sculptures from American Artist Kate MacDowell.  Her work responds our relationship with the natural world, to environmental changes, pollution, mythology, Art History and figures of speech.

“I chose porcelain for its luminous and ghostly qualities as well as its strength and ability to show fine texture.  It highlights both the impermanence and fragility of natural forms in a dying ecosystem, while paradoxically, being a material that can last for thousands of years and is historically associated with high status and value.”

Kate MacDowell exhibited her work at the SCOPE Miami, separate group exhibits with Patrajdas Contemporary and Mindy Solomon Gallery in December 2011.
