    This is quite impressive – as feathers often are. Does Kate MccGwire make feather sculptures that she later photographs or does she create all of this digitally?

    Hi Davidkus
    Yes they are site-specific sculptures made from feathers that I then photograph. ( not digital)

    I’ve been a fan of her and seeing her new works, gives me the same feeling when I discovered her works for the first time. Stunning.

    How to you go about collecting such large quantities of feathers?

    • http://www.katemccgwire.com Kate MccGwire

      I collect the feathers in many different ways – you may want to check out a short film about my work which explains some of the processes. Kate
