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.

Tardigrades are microscopic multicellular animals commonly known as water bears, or, even more esoterically, moss piglets. Tardigrades are notable for their ability to survive in harsh environments by entering a state similar to hibernation. Tardigrades are the only known animal life able to survive in a vacuum. I just rephrased most of that from Wikipedia and I feel like I'm writing a fourth grade report.

Someone else's fine illustration of tardigrade faces.
