ABOUT THE BOOK

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 Jenniferís sister, Wendy Mulhern. Dozens of color photographs, plus a
section on evolution and process that's illustrated with forty-five color images, clearly show the depth and brilliance of Jenniferís work. In this
collaboration Jennifer and Wendy celebrate art and how it holds things that canít 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 lifeís body of work.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Acclaimed ceramic artist Jennifer McCurdy has work in the permanent exhibits at The Smithsonianís Renwick Gallery, The Everson Museum of
Art, Syracuse, The American Museum of Ceramic Art, and many others. She works in wheel-thrown fine porcelain, altered, carved, and fired to
cone 10, where the porcelain becomes non-porous and translucent. In her unique approach, developed and continually refined over the years, she
explores the dynamic structural forces that allow her to create vessels which, in their increasing delicacy, ever more clearly display the laws that
hold them together.

Poet Wendy Mulhern (Jenniferís sister) has authored and designed eight books of poetry, five of which she also illustrated. She writes a poem a
day, which she posts at wendymulhern.com.
