/* Pinterest website claiming thingie */ /* That's it for the pinterest thingie */ Aberrant Ceramics: Palo Alto


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.

Palo Alto

I'm visiting my sister's house in Palo Alto. This first sculpture was originally meant as a cake topper for her wedding in August, both she and her husband being lifestyle bicycle enthusiasts. It was too heavy to top a wedding cake and was also apparently neatly bisected in transit and now lives on their mantel. In reality they do not have disproportionately enormous noses and rarely wear berets as far as I know. They are also in possession of all of their limbs and are not merely stereotypically French-looking heads perched on a rudimentary tandem bicycle.

The large object to the left of the cake topper is a bicycle-oriented mixed-media piece by my father.

The other piece is a mushroom sculpture I brought with me on the plane.
