Jennifer’s McCurdy’s porcelain pottery looks almost as alive as its inspiration.
McCurdy on her work:
Emotion fills me when I see perfect forms in nature, from the cracked conch shell on the beach revealing its perfect spiral, to the milkweed pod burst in the field, its brilliant airborne seeds streaming into the sunlight.

The dinosaur formerly known as Brachiosaurus brancai was possibly the best dinosaur, but try as I might, I can never do it justice. Here’s another attempt at making it look regal by having it roll around in mud. I think I may have a strategy problem here.
