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.

The Rolling Stones Tongue and Lips Top Hat and Stash Box

During a studio event showing student and member work, a neighborhood man approached me to talk about the clay objects I had on display. These particular clay objects had some clay pipes among them and the man became very excited. He told me about a hat that his wife had made with the Rolling Stones lips and tongue logo emblazoned on it with red sequins. He wanted to commission me to make a clay version of it to serve as a stash box. He later brought his sister back with him to show her my pipes and other clay atrocities. She took me aside and apologized for her brother and thanked me for indulging him as he walked around the neighborhood drunk. I got as far as making a small clay version of the hat, but it was obvious that he wasn't coming back after a year or so and I was bored of the project by that time anyway.

Here is the original hat.

Here I am wearing the hat. I look so happy because I'm going to throw it out soon.
