Kate MacDowell  Amazing Porcelain Sculptures
Through her porcelain sculptures, artist Kate MacDowell explores our romantic notions towards the environment alongside the human propensity for destruction. Her pieces are responses to the damage we inflict upon our habitats including climate change, genetic modification of organisms, and pollution. Human figures and animals act as symbols of the natural world, humorously and sometimes disturbingly transformed into new creatures that share qualities across the boundary of species. Hand crafted and exceptionally detailed, her work is a traditional medium that takes on contemporary significance in an age of ecological degradation.Kate MacDowell and her ghostly sculptures are beautiful and somewhat haunting examinations of the human relationship with nature. Each piece is molded by hand and then hollowed. Choosing porcelain for its pallor, luminosity, and ability to show texture, it also allows her to represent “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.”

 Aganetha Dyck  Collaborates with Bees for Her Sculptures





Aganetha Dyck doesn’t necessarily create her own works of art, she essentially facilitates the process of art. Working in joint effort with endangered species number one, or so it feels, Aganetha Dyck’s collection of vintage porcelain figurines has been covered in a sticky honeycomb surface. Hailing from Canada with a strong interest in environmental issues, Aganetha Dyck works with sculptures that are broken or damaged in some way. Working with beekeepers, the honeybees enhance what would have been discarded with their own unique patterns. Aganetha Dyck reveals, “I choose damaged objects because honeybees are meticulous beings, they continuously mend anything around them and they do pay attention to detail.” She encourages the process with wax and honey.
