This is the first book to showcase the work of acclaimed ceramic artist Jennifer McCurdy. Collectors and art enthusiasts will be delighted to gaze at these luminescent forms, lyrically accompanied by the poetry of Jennifers sister, Wendy Mulhern. Dozens of color photographs, plus a section on evolution and process thats illustrated with forty-five color images, clearly show the depth and brilliance of Jennifers work. In this collaboration Jennifer and Wendy celebrate art and how it holds things that cant be contained in any other way. These vessels, of porcelain and poetry, resonate with each other, engaging an intimate conversation. The evolution and process section provides insight into both the internal process of artistry and the physical and temporal dedication essential to bringing forth a lifes body of work.
