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.

Bat-Rat-Spider Bas-Relief

I'm pleased to announce I'm no longer a home owner. As I was clearing out various cabinets, I found a lot of unfinished clay work from the early experimental years. Some of it was bad enough to throw away. Other pieces were bad enough to keep.

This is not really a bas-relief, but that's how I was thinking of it at the time, so I'm keeping it as part of the title.

It depicts the monster from the 1959 low-budget science fiction film The Angry Red Planet. I've heard it referred to as a bat-rat-spider.

It was also used on the cover of the Misfits' 1982 album Walk Among Us.
