Porcelain Animals (in Head Gear) by Kate MacDowell

Kate MacDowell creates beautiful and intricate porcelain figures. Though many pieces in her portfolio are a bit eerie, there's a certain beauty that comes hand-in-hand when artists explore the relationship of life in death and vise versa. Below I've shared a few of her pieces that are both cheeky and thoughtful.
