> DESCRIPTION

The artwork presented in this three-person show at Santa Fe Clay is inhabited by emotion and spirit. Sandra Byers, Jennifer McCurdy, and Susan Schultz bring SFC all white work.
Translucent porcelain is just one underlying theme in these three women’s work. The dynamic play between light and shadow is achieved with this beautiful ceramic medium. Light is absorbed and reflected. It dances through the lucent porcelain.

Sandra Byers, from Wisconsin, hand builds, pinches, alters and carves her vessels until their surface texture resembles a combination of bark, feathers, shells and torn paper. Her pieces have an air of a closed rose bud or maybe a cresting wave, always an impression of the natural world.

Jennifer McCurdy, from Massachuetts, throws her vessels. The porcelain is then incised and cut away. In the end they look and feel as though a whirlwind has picked up and spiraled the clay into elegantly designed vessels.

Susan Schultz, from Conneticut, takes her inspiration from the ocean. She hand-builds pieces that form narrative stories. Walks down the beach bring about ornate trays filled with driftwood, shells and lost possessions.
