Curtis Benzle – Master Artist Makes His Mark in Alabama

Curtis Benzle, Huntsville, is featured in the publication; “Masters: Porcelain”, a survey of the premier artists working in porcelain worldwide.  Of the forty international artists included in the survey, only Sunkoo Yuh of Athens, GA, and Mr. Benzle represent the Southeast region of the U.S.

Curator Richard Burkett invited artists from around the glode to contribute to this, the first in a major new series featuring the top artists in varying media from Lark Books.  Burkett’s choices condense these artist’s achievements to a relative handful of remarkable pieces—something of a mini-retrospective in print-yet they masterfully illustrate what is unique and worthy of study with each artist.

Not quite like any other material, porcelain in the right hands is capable of being awesomely delicate as well as expressively forceful.  In the 18th century, porcelain attracted the admiration and greed of alchemists and princes.  Today, for many, that age-old mystique still clings to this unusual and notoriously difficult clay.

Mr. Benzle has maintained his studio in Huntsville, AL since 2002 and recently completed an solo exhibition at the Sherrie Gallerie in Columbus, Ohio.
