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.

Flooer 2

My first recent piece that did not explode in the kiln, this is a flooer, a magical imaginary animal from After Man by Dougal Dixon. After Man portrays a zoological analysis of the period immediately following the extinction of Homo sapiens. The flooer evolves on a island colonized entirely by bats. Its ears and nose-like sensory apparatus imitate flower petals and it secretes a sweet-smelling substance to attract its insect prey. We don't have the correct shade of crimson available as a glaze, so I'm waiting until I can procure the proper shade of acrylic paint.
