Pottery/Artist Who Uses Automobile Paint as Glaze


There was a certain artist that caught my eye  back in college and I would love to buy
one of his pieces. He is unique because in his art he uses car paint
as a glaze. His pieces were all very brightly colored and beautiful.  I have been looking online for a while and have no idea how to find his name or art. Would you mind helping me out?


Dear Cameron,

Thank you for your recent question. Brian Rochefort is the only artist I know of that uses automobile paint as a glaze in his ceramics. If you place his name in your search engine you will come up with some of his works.

I hope this is who you are looking for. Thank you for your question. If I can be of further service to you, please feel free to contact me again any time. I am always at your service.

Will answer any questions on hand building, wheel, glaze, firing. Speciality questions to include those in glaze calculation and development, firing techniques. Please do not send questions on identifying pottery. Although I would love to add this to my question topics, I have a retreat to run as well as the studio and volunteering on AllExperts, and therefore do not have the available time to research indentification and marks. Thank you for understanding.


Experience includes 30 years in pottery design and education. Have taught online and studio classes worldwide for the last 20 years. Own a pottery retreat specializing in firing techniques. Have 12 years solid experience in glaze calculation and formulation as well as problem solving in glaze chemistry. I am the first potter in the United States to have developed a complete package of pottery equipment blueprints for a studio. The blueprints include wheels, kilns, studio furniture, wedgeboards, raku kilns, slab rollers, ball mills and studio tools.
