Robert Arneson

3-D art ceramics extraordinaire Robert Arneson is best known for his cartoon like life size self portrait busts. This is my personal favorite entitled (lower image) "Assassination of a Famous Nut Artist", he has many surrelal like self portrait busts that depicts him with different exaggerated expressions but reserved with life like detail enough to convey the uncanny resemblance. Arneson has inspired many contemporary ceramicists of today with the unique surrealism combined with the undoubted personal character of his work.
