Short documentary on a sculptor whose medium is feathers

Artist Kate MccGwire creates remarkable sculptures from carefully-curated feathers sent to her from around the globe. This short documentary examines her philosophy and aesthetic.

Via Crane.TV: visits artist Kate MccGwire in her barge studio in Hampton. Since piquing Charles Saatchi's interest at her degree show at the Royal College of Art with her chicken wishbone installation, Brood, the artist has looked to birds for inspiration, making beautiful objects using feathers of repulsive birds like pigeon, duck, magpie, pheasant and crow.
