Lily Inspiration: Kate MccGwire

When I get home from work I usually spend around 20 minutes stumbling around the internet to see what's going on in the world and I happened upon this sculptor -Kate MccGwire- who works with feathers to make abstract sculptures that are fascinating.
The longer I look at them the more intense and interesting they become, she really harnesses form and movement to draw your attention inside each of the pieces. I love how she uses shapes that make the feathers flow like water. Check it out:
