How can I make
Jen McCurdy is a true master of her craft. She uses wheel thrown porcelain to form unique sculptures of great beauty which evoke the philosophy of Georgia O'Keefe.
McCurdy uses her potter's wheel to form her vessels. She then carves them while they are in a leather-like state. They are then fired to produce unbelievably hard, translucent vessels full of energy & counter-point. Each vessel's surface creates an exciting chiaroscuro effect of light & shadow.
McCurdy has shown her work at major craft fairs & museums throughout the United States.
Jen McCurdy's sculptures are represented in the permanent collections of The Smithsonian's Renwick Gallery, Washington DC, Tweed Museum of Art, Duluth, MN, Racine Art Museum, Racine, WI, and The Lancaster Museum of Art, Lancaster, PA, Everson Museum of Art, Syracuse, NY, Museum of Art & Archeology, University of Missouri, MO, Columbia Museum of Art, Columbia, SC, Minneapolis Museum of Art, Minneapolis, MN, Mississippi Museum of Art, Jackson, MS, Fuller Craft Museum, Brockton, MA, Weisman Art Museum, Minneapolis, MN, Arkansas Art Center, Little Rock, AR, Boca Raton Museum of Art, Boca Raton, FL, Lowe Museum of Art, Coral Gables, FL, Knoxville Museum of Art, Knoxville, TN.
