Fire Within by Curtis Benzle

Two porcelain sculptures by Curtis Benzle, Fine Arts professor emeritus, have been acquired by the New York Metropolitan Museum of Art for its permanent collection. The signature-style sculptures are of translucent porcelain and are constructed using Benzle’s personal variation on the nerikomi color inlay technique. Other recent museum acquisitions of Benzle’s work include the Tucson (AZ) Museum of Art and the Crocker Museum of Art (Sacramento, CA).

Benzle’s studio is in Huntsville, AL. His current work can be seen online at http://benzleporcelain.com and at http://www.sherriegallerie.com.
