Inspired: The work of Kate MacDowell

“We do not want merely to see beauty, though, God knows, even that is bounty enough.  We want something else which can hardly be put into words--to be united with the beauty we see, to pass into it, to receive it into ourselves, to bathe in it, to become part of it.” – C.S. Lewis.

 This quote begins Kate MacDowell's statement about her work, which illustrates our current relationship with the natural world

Her pieces are at once beautiful and disturbing and I particularly love the detail that she achieves with textures using simple white porcelain, giving the work an almost ghost like feel. I encourage you to go and check out her website for more images and a complete statement.
