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.

Tales from the Shelf

Last night I went to the pottery studio. My small shelf in the closet is packed with fragments of broken sculptures, books, a shoebox full of molds, tools, clay, and recent unfired work. To get to the tools, clay, and molds, I have to take everything off the shelf and then put it back on. Each time I move the unfired pieces, it increases the chances that they're going to break. Unfortunately, I damaged this unfired beholder just as I was cleaning up. I knocked off one of the eye stalks. I managed to reattach it with clay slip, but its chances for surviving the bisque kiln intact are still diminished.

Below is another 1e AD&D monster that I'm attempting for the first time. I just wanted to note that I removed the logo from the shoe box because I don't want to be accused of product placement on this blog. Fuck you, New Balance (does that count as product placement?).
