Aberrant Ceramics is the artwork of Aaron Nosheny,
ceramic artist 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 feel like I'm frantically birthing as many clay monstrosities out into the world as I can.

Darth Vader Flowerpot 2

This is a second attempt at the Darth Vader Flowerpot from January 2011, which didn't even make it to the kiln. This version survived because it's a much simpler structure. It's also a cruder likeness of Darth Vader.

The view from above. While it is in theory a functional flower pot with drainage holes in the bottom, the helmet curves backwards over much of the pot. The resident plant would either need to be flexible enough to grow around it or willing to occupy the very back part of the pot.
