From afar, these sculptures by Kate MccGwire look like polished metal with detailed carvings. But believe it or not, they’re made entirely out of layered bird feathers!
The London-based artist makes use of feathers from birds such as pigeons, mallards, crows, and magpie to create her sculptures. MccGwire’s fascination with birds was said to have started when she was still a child growing up at a place close to nature.
Below are photos of some of her latest sculptures:
