Jennifer’s McCurdy’s porcelain pottery looks almost as alive as its inspiration.
McCurdy on her work:
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.
Living on Martha’s Vineyard, island time, especially in the winter, seems to conform to nature’s cycles. As a potter, I strive to make my work reflect the balance of life around me. It is important that the patterns I see around me are integrated into my forms.
The Capture Creatures Gallery Show on Saturday was the most fun! Thankyou so much to everyone who came by. The show is up for another two weeks, so if you are in the LA area you should check it out. There are also a number of the 156 paintings still available to purchase online!
Katherine! I see you in line there!!
Wow, you get a gold star, Lizzie!
This was such a perfect show. Becky Dreistadt was a total cutie and signed my Capture Creatures book and I talked with Jed Henry upstairs for a half hour. It was a great day.
“How do you plan to execute the Faust Child, Lord?” Eov seemed to interject himself, making light of his question. He felt the strings being pulled across the lot of them around the table, and decided it was best to derail it now. “Hanging?”
“No,” Huso waved off his question, “hangings are for traitors. Perhaps we’ll let her waste away. Hang her in one of those old fashioned bird-cages for all to see wither. Or beheading. The idea of the child’s head rolling rings rather pleasing, too.”
