Stubby the Dwarf
Early work from Rochefort, before his transition to a heavy use of glaze for messy, gloopy or caustic surfaces. “Stubby the Dwarf” is remarkable in its antithesis to this subsequent approach, the fantastically smooth and monochromatic porcelain expressing familiar fascination with surface at its entirely opposite point, all tactile and fully impenetrable in its cold gleaming resolve. Comparatively, the figurative gesture of the object itself hints more toward a state of collapse — a biological form disintegrating or cleaved into a tumbling mass.
