Beautiful Swirling Sculptures Glow From Inside
Ceramic artist Jennifer McCurdya, a resident of Martha’s Vineyard, has been working with porcelain for over thirty years, creating swirling sculptures reflects the beauty of life that surrounds her. Her recent work is quite unique, besides the organic-looking thrown porcelain, she illuminates the insides of her porcelain vessels with 23 carat gold leaf.
Here is part of her artist statement: “Emotion fills me when I see perfect forms in nature, from the cracked conch shell on the beach revealing its perfect spiral, to the milkweed pod burst in the field, its brilliant airborne seeds streaming into the sunlight. The ordered symmetry and asymmetry of nature’s forms reveal the growth of life, the movement of life.”
