Jennifer McCurdy is a porcelain artist with a strong interest for dynamic form and pattern. She begins her process by throwing a form, she then alters it and incises into her work to create impossible-like forms. What I find fascinating about her impeccable work is the ability with which she details her pieces, rendering them fragile, but at the same time so balanced. Normally, color is one of the first things that catches my eye, however, in this case, I find the lack of color breathtaking. The patters and dynamic textures are more than enough.
Jennifer McCurdy is the woman!

David Hockney and I picked the same color palette for the text on our professional websites. And very similar formats. It obviously means we are of comparable intellect/aesthetic.
