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.

Kiln Did Not Fire Properly

One of the kilns has a note on it which says: "Kiln did not fire properly. Do not touch!" It contained my Carp Dragon and a few more of those USA-shaped surrealist objects. I know they didn't explode because it was a glaze kiln, not a bisque kiln. If they made it this far, they are most likely not going to explode. They may come out looking horrible because of the improperly firing kiln, but at least it won't have been my fault, which is a relief.

I got back three finished pieces: the Tanuki, the Triangularly Prismic Cat Column, and the damaged Zuckuss Column.
