            “Brian Rochefort’s unedited ‘gloop’ sculptures represent a relentless material romance. These sculptures represent a blending of old and new ceramic techniques. These perfectly mis-informed hollow, ceramic vessels are at once complimentary to one another while each retains their own distinct composition and form. Each piece’s surface, texture and sheen reflect and exuberance of possibilities that are experimented in combinations with the vessel as canvas or laboratory. Brian Rochefort is a Los Angeles-based mixed media sculptor working in ceramic, glaze, and automotive paint. Born and raised in Rhode Island, he attended the Rhode Island School of Design, receiving a BFA in Ceramics. He was the recipient of the Lillian Fellowship as an artist-in-residence at the Archie Bray Foundation for the Ceramic Arts from 2007-2009.” – Brian Rochefort
