/* Pinterest website claiming thingie */ /* That's it for the pinterest thingie */ Aberrant Ceramics: Vader Face


Aberrant Ceramics is the artwork of Aaron Nosheny,
ceramicist and potter in Tucson, Arizona.

I work in the medium of stoneware clay and make hand-built pottery, sculpture, hamsas, ornaments, masks, and a variety of other forms.

Self-taught artist on the autism spectrum. I like monsters, insects, weird animals, body horror, horror comedy, Halloween decorations, fast food mascots, kitsch – and all of these creep into my work, but there’s really no overarching theme. I’m just frantically birthing as many clay monstrosities out into the world as I can until I’m no longer able to do so.

This blog has served as a record of my ceramic output since 2006.

Vader Face

This godless winter holiday season is going to be an adventure in all clay gift giving. My sister requested something incorporating Greedo, Moe Szyslak, or the endangered California tiger salamander. Then she changed her mind and requested a Darth Vader flower pot. Darth Vader is not the sort of Star Wars character I would usually incorporate into my work, but I hate to disappoint. I made this part tonight and I'm going to attempt the flower pot (including Vader's helmet) tomorrow.
