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


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.

Nun Progression

This is a series of clay objects made from a mold of a plaster statue of a nun with a bowtie. The clay wasn't thick enough to capture the detail for the object on the left, but I kept it for its blank larval countenance.

The nun with a bowtie is Saint Frances Xavier Cabrini, the first American citizen to be canonized by the Catholic Church.
