Andre Gide says, “Pay attention only to the form; emotion will come spontaneously to inhabit it. A perfect dwelling always finds an inhabitant.”
Jennifer McCurdy tries to pay attention. She works with porcelain because it owns fine qualities of light and shadow. She throws her form on the wheel, and then alters the piece by hand to create the soft shadows. Next, she carves the piece to add the energy and movement. The work is then fired to cone 10, where the porcelain becomes non-porous and translucent.
Jennifer received a BFA from Michigan State University in 1979 and then learned how to formulate and throw porcelain at Florida Atlantic University in 1980 under the tutelage of John McCoy. She has been selling her porcelain in fine art shows and galleries for the last thirty-five years.
