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.

Radish Spirit

This is the Radish Spirit from Spirited Away. I based the color on the image below, but it doesn't really match the color of the Japanese daikon radish, which is closer to yellow.

Spirited Away takes place at a spa for spirits and I assume the Radish Spirit is meant to be wearing a g-string-like cover up for the time not spent soaking in hot water. The image shows a little flap to cover up whatever genital organs vegetable spirit entities may possess in the front, but I wasn't sure about the back. I gave him the modesty flap in the back because he didn't really have a waist and I didn't think the strap around the back side looked like it would hold.

This image shows the real color of the daikon radish.
