Aberrant Ceramics is the ceramic artwork of Aaron Nosheny.

I work in the medium of stoneware clay and make hand-built pottery, primitive sculpture, hamsas, and a variety of other forms. My work celebrates and pushes the plasticity of the medium. The content of the work follows an inner landscape of biological obsessions, psychic damage, and bouncy cartoon animals.

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.
