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.

Pikaia the Burgess Shale Chordate

This is a new sculpture of Pikaia, the Burgess Shale chordate, to replace the one I sold. It was placed too close to one of supports used to layer the kiln shelves and the glaze stuck to the support. It's hard to see in the photo, but it's a rough, unglazed lump on the tail.
