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.

Damaged Beyond Redemption

I'm moving into a new apartment and there is a shelf in the living room which was much sturdier looking than it actually was. There were some clay objects on top of and underneath and a lot of my favorite work of the last six years was destroyed.

Several objects are damaged beyond redemption, but I'm keeping them because I want to try to use them as models for copies. This never really works out. Occasionally it's better; usually it's not as good, but attempted copies are never anything like the original.

From Left to right: Skull Shroom, Giraffe Column, Warthog Column, Warlock

Other objects were too badly damaged and I felt the need to get rid of the corpses immediately. The cat column was actually only missing an ear but I don't like it very much and I like it even less without an ear.

From left to right: Log Sculpture, Crinoid Pilgrim, Cthulhu Madonna, Giraluna (second from left on linked page), Cat Column, Grell Shroom 2, Branching Column, IG-88 Column, Twisted Column.

The branching column never made it onto the blog. Here it is:
