Sarah Conti is a sculptor who creates a range of animals. I especially love her bird range, such as the picture above, where she adds real feathers into the sculpture. I love this mix of creation with reality. It almost gives it an extra sense of life. Her use of texture is fantastic (I think she uses both ceramic and porcelain in her work). I love the simplicity porcelain, or white ceramic, gives, allowing us to focus on this beautiful natural texture of the feathers, and it makes the few feathers stand out even more. Beautiful :) See her work here.
