The subjects of Kate MacDowell's intricate and horrifically beautiful sculptures are characters from a porcelain nightmare. Striking the perfect balance between beauty and the beast – like a Dr Jekyl and Mr Hyde conjoined twin – her creatures are crafted by hand with meticulous detail, technique and skill. The brittle/fragile nature and monochromatic luminance of porcelain as the medium only adds to the chilling quality of her work. Fans of Ricky Swallow and Charles Krafft are sure to be impressed Ms MacDowell's creations. More at katemacdowell.com.
