Artists get their inspiration from all sorts of places, from current events to fantasy novels. However, for Jennifer McCurdy, her inspiration comes firmly from nature. McCurdy has been working with porcelain for around thirty years, and crafts the most beautiful vases. The majority of her recent pieces have been white on the outside, but inlaid with 23 carat gold leaf on the inside, so that they appear to be imbued with an ethereal glow. On her website, McCurdy writes about her work…
“Emotion fills me when I see all the perfect forms in nature …from the cracked conch shell on the beach revealing its perfect spiral, to the milkweed pod cracked open in the field…[t]he ordered symmetry and asymmetry of nature’s forms reveal the growth of life, the movement of life.”

These vases are beautiful! Although they wouldn't be much good for putting your cut flowers in!
