Brian Rochefort’s Cup is part of his “Energy Gloops” series, which employ a combination of old and new ceramic techniques to figure a relentless romance with material romance. Rochefort is among the only ceramic artists to use Dupont’s automotive paints, working directly with developers to craft custom urethane pigments combining the best in paint and plastics technology. Each piece’s surface, texture, and particular sheen reflect an exuberant experimentation with the vessel as canvas and laboratory. –Courtesy of The Kitchen
