September 2015 – Jennifer McCurdy Demo Workshop – Sold Out

Jennifer McCurdy Demo Workshop

Thrown, Altered, and Carved Porcelain Sculpture

Saturday September 12, 10am-3pm
Lexicon Ceramic Studios
Cost: $85 

Jennifer McCurdy,Vortex Vessel, Porcelain


Jennifer will demonstrate the technique of “dry throwing,” using two metal ribs to create the shape of the piece after the basic cylinder has been thrown. Next, she will show how altering and folding that form by hand can add movement and strength. Then you will see carving techniques on the porcelain when it is leather hard. She will show sanding techniques once the piece is bone dry.
Jen has been selling her porcelain in art shows and galleries for the last thirty years, and her work is included in the collections of several institutions, including the Smithsonian Renwick Gallery in Washington, DC, the Everson Museum of Art in Syracuse, NY, and the American Museum of Ceramic Art in Pomona, CA. She maintains a studio in Vineyard Haven, Massachusetts. Her focus on the reflective and bone-like quality of the bare porcelain has led her to explore the light and shadow of clay forms, resulting in a unique melding of line and structure. She is looking forward to sharing some of the tricks she has learned along the way – tricks of the trade and tricks of porcelain.
