Kate MccGwire
A while back, I posted some images of Kate MccGwire's feather installation pieces. I found her work through a post on My Love for You is a Stampede, and today there was a follow up interview there with the artist.

I have such an immediate reaction and sense of connection to Kate's work. As a kid, I grew up with several avid bird watchers who always had feathers around from their many scouting trips. Learning about how Kate obtains her feathers and her connection to the bird farms in the UK is so interesting. It makes me think about my leather tooling work and sourcing leather locally.
Check out this great interview with the artist. Her studio is a houseboat--c'mon!
