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.

Daria Morgendorffer

I like this sculpture because it's true to its cartoonish, (2<x<3)-dimensional roots. I started off trying to imagine Daria in three dimensions, but was quickly reminded that I'm completely unable to render the human body in clay (although this one at least has patellas). So I cut off the back, leaving a reasonably faithful image of the disaffected nineties cartoon teenager in the front and a mass of writhing entrails and pulsating organs in the back (see below).

Note lack of writhing entrails and pulsating organs.

Practice Daria faces. The one on the left appears to have a monocle.
