    About The Work

    American artist Jeff Koons paired with Bernardaud to translate his iconic floral sculpture, Split-Rocker, into porcelain limited editions. Jeff Koons and Bernardaud both share a history of creating porcelain objects with exquisite surface detail using traditional skills and techniques in the fabrication of porcelain. This close collaboration has led to the creation of a work by Jeff Koons: a bisque porcelain vase titled Split-Rocker in a limited edition of 3,500 copies.

    Created in 2000, the floral sculpture Split-Rocker is a highly complex architectural structure covered with a million brightly colored flowers. The bicephalous piece, inspired by a rocking toy for children is divided in two parts: the “Dino” section (the head of the dinosaur) and the rocking horse section (the head of a pony). Split Rocker is a monumental sculpture by the artist that measures 446 7/8 in height x 483 1/16 in width x 427 9/16 inches in depth with a total surface area of 1043 square feet.

    The sculpture was shown in 2000 for the first time in the courtyard of the Palais des Papes (The Palace of the Popes) in Avignon and again in 2008 at the Chateau de Versailles. In 2012, it delighted visitors in the park at the Fondation Beyeler in Basel, Switzerland.
