Kate MccGwire: Not Owl, Owl Feathers

I came across these amazing sculptures made by London based artist Kate MccGwire who uses number of recycled feathers to create these intriguing fluid forms.

The feathers used for these pieces are mainly from owls, pigeons & pheasants. "All of her feathers are received from a network of pigeon racers and farmers who mail her the feathers they have collected when their birds begin molting in the Spring." So, no bird is harmed!

If you want to see her incredible work in person then stop by at Eleventh Plateau, Hydra Historical Archives Museum, Greece where she will be exhibiting from July 8th through September 4th.
