Marcia Donahue ~ Chickens 'n other wonders



There is a tiny corner of Berkeley that could have been out of a dream by Alice (the one who went to Wonderland). There, the flora blends so perfectly with the organic sculptures created by Marcia Donahue that at times it is difficult to tell which is which. As you wander through this tiny world gone wild, filled with bowling balls (you read right), her creations, as well as those of sculptor, Bullwinkle, you really do feel like you've fallen down a rabbit hole; except this one is populated by the most amazing chickens the likes of which I have never seen before. But don't take my word for it, come see for yourself.

Come, explore the fascinating world of Marcia Donahue. It's an adventure that will not easily be forgotten. The interior of her house is equally as amazing as her garden.
