Aberrant Ceramics is the artwork of Aaron Nosheny,
ceramicist 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’m just frantically birthing as many clay monstrosities out into the world as I can until I’m no longer able to do so.

This blog has served as a record of my ceramic output since 2006. Want to wade through two decades of my neurodivergent art experiments, including all the failures? You're in the right place!

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?).
