Spiral porcelain vessels inspired by the ocean sculpted by Jennifer McCurdy

Taking inspiration from the ocean, more precisely from sea life forms, such as crustaceans, conch shells, and coral reefs, ceramic artist Jennifer McCurdy creates absolutely stunning spiral porcelain vessels.

Ceramic artist Jennifer McCurdy lives on the island of Martha’s Vineyard. She has been working with porcelain for over thirty years. For the last few years, she has been working with structural questions. How thin can the high fire porcelain be before it collapses in the fire? How much can it be cut away and still maintain structural integrity? How can the structural form be integrated with the visual, as in nature? How can the movement of the potter’s wheel and the fire of the kiln be reflected in the finished piece, which is rock-hard and permanent?
