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.

Lira da Braccio #2

This is my second attempt to replicate this image of a decorated medieval stringed instrument. This time I ensured symmetry by printing out the leafy designs and the shape of the instrument itself and tracing them on the clay.

For comparison, the original image, the new Lira da Braccio, and the first one from last month.

I like the glaze (Randy's Red) on the first one better than the Nutmeg glaze on the second one. I also like the white eyes on the first one.
