Event Description

Philadelphia Museum of Art Craft Show - - - Jennifer McCurdy by Jennifer McCurdy
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 of its fine qualities of light and shadow. She throws her forms on the wheel, and then alters the pieces by hand to create the soft shadows. Next, she carves the pieces to add energy and movement. The work is then fired to cone 10, where the porcelain becomes non-porous and translucent. (Click READ MORE to see process video.) In further exploration, she marries the fine porcelain with the ancient art of gilding. The 24 carat gold leaf illumines the interior of the vessel, to reveal new curves and patterns. Jennifer received a BFA from Michigan State University in 1979. She has been selling her porcelain in art shows and galleries for the last forty years, and her work is included in the permanent collections of over twenty museums, including the Smithsonian Renwick Gallery in Washington, DC, the Philadelphia Museum of Art, the Everson Museum of Art in Syracuse, NY, and the American Museum of Ceramic Art in Pomona, CA. She maintains a studio in Vineyard Haven, Massachusetts. For more information, contact Jennifer at PO Box 138, Vineyard Haven, MA 02568 Website: Email: Read more
