    sculptor kate macdowell of portland, oregon, USA, depicts the fragility of nature and humanity through a romanticized connection between the human body and the environment through porcelain figures. the entirety of her work draws upon historical figures and events, art history, and greek mythology. the interaction between the modern human and the environment is evident as a motivation for the artist in the rendering of each figure. macdowell’s works are initially formed by hand from a solid piece of porcelain with the depth and layering of each construction epitomizing her unique interaction with this medium. the smaller figures within each piece are made individually as the artist develops a tangibly intimate interaction with each structure. her choice of porcelain has an ethereal effect on her finished pieces— each work is rendered with exquisite detail, the delicate quality as ultimate strength of the porcelain is magnified by her wonderfully unsettling combination of elements of nature on or in the human form. macdowell’s collection has an impression of biological accuracy, resulting in an artifact or specimen like treatment of each piece.

Ying Yeung by Tsang Cheung Shing
Ceramic artist Tsang Cheung Shing created this incredible pottery piece. The name Ying Yeung refers to a Chinese beverage of mixed coffee and tea and also symbolizes the mandarin duck, a metaphor for marriage and love.

    Shadow, by Thai artist Rook Floro, represents the psychological theory about the shadow. It focuses on repressed ideas, weaknesses and desires of oneself that the conscious mind refuses to acknowledge.

    If you look closely, the ‘sculpture’ seated in the chair is actually the artist himself.

    Do you recognize this awesome robot? You should if you’re a fan of Hayao Miyazaki’s anime films. This sculpture is a life-size version of the robot soldier from Laputa: Castle in the Sky, which wasStudio Ghibli’s first feature film.

    And guess what! You can visit him in person for the price of a flight to Tokyo and admission to the Ghibli Museum. It’s definitely on our To Do list.
