Sculpted Porcelain Helmet Inspired by Iron Man and Mandalorian: A Fusion of Art and Pop Culture
Design firm Discommon has taken inspiration from the worlds of Marvel and Star Wars to create a truly unique art object – a porcelain helmet that combines the iconic designs of Iron Man and Mandalorian. This highly detailed sculpture, currently in production and set to ship in October 2023, is a testament to the creativity and craftsmanship of Discommon’s talented team.
The idea for the helmet came about when Discommon stumbled upon a series of AI-generated images that resembled porcelain. Intrigued by the possibility of bringing these digital creations to life, they set out to create a helmet that captured the essence of both Iron Man and Mandalorian, while incorporating ancient East pottery patterns.
It was no easy feat. Discommon started from scratch, carefully outlining the structure of the helmets and finding one of China’s oldest porcelain factories to bring their vision to reality. The result is a stunning sculpted porcelain helmet that showcases the fusion of art, pop culture, and traditional craftsmanship.
It’s important to note that this helmet is not designed to be worn. Its weight and delicate nature make it more suitable for display rather than practical use. However, the helmet is large enough that it might be possible to put it on, though not recommended. Discommon even suggests having a hammer nearby in case the wearer needs to break it off.
What sets this porcelain helmet apart are the hidden surprises within its ancient Chinese pottery patterns. Wearers will have the pleasure of discovering these details, adding to the overall experience of owning this unique art object.
With a price tag of $750 USD, the Iron Man-Mandalorian porcelain helmet is a collectible piece that appeals to both fans of Marvel and Star Wars, as well as art enthusiasts. Discommon has also created a bronze sibling for the helmet, providing another option for those seeking a different aesthetic.
In their Instagram post, Discommon acknowledges the challenges they faced in bringing this project to life, stating, “Maybe it’s a lot easier to create it in AI, but it will be a lot more satisfying when it’s in porcelain. Steady progress – if you have been following, we started from scratch and have created our own form.” This dedication to their craft is evident in the stunning results.
As the helmet continues to be produced and prepared for shipping, fans eagerly await the chance to add this one-of-a-kind art piece to their collections. Discommon’s sculpted porcelain helmet is not just a nod to popular culture, but a celebration of artistry and innovation.
