Kayla Kaul Jennifer McCurdy Who Jennifer Is. A Quote About Her Work "I use a translucent porcelain body because it has a beautiful surface, and it conveys the qualities of light and shadow that I wish to express. After throwing my vessel on the potter's wheel, I alter the form to set up a movement of soft shadow. When the porcelain is leather hard, I carve patterns to add energy and counterpoint. I fire my work to cone 10, where the porcelain becomes non-porous and translucent, and one of the hardest surfaces known to man.
Some of the finished pieces hold elusive glimpses of the balance between the convex and the concave, and light absorbed and reflected. In further exploration, I marry the fine porcelain with the ancient art of gilding. The 23 carat gold leaf illumines the interior of the vessel, to reveal new curves and patterns. " Jennifer McCurdy - Jennifer McCurdy was born in New Port, Rhode Island, in 1955.
- In 1978, Jennifer graduated with a B.F.A. with honors from Michigan State University, where she studied under Louis Raynor.
- In 1980, she did a Graduate study at Florida Atlantic University, where she
studied under John McCoy. Jennifer McCurdy is a ceramic artist who primarily works on the wheel with porcelain. She lives on the island of "Martha's Vineyard." Why I Chose Her I chose Jennifer McCurdy
