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.

Orcs Acting in a Violent Fashion

These are some small figures of orcs acting in a violent fashion. I had been hoping to make D&D miniatures, but they came out too large and I don't think I can work on a smaller scale than this. I'm currently planning a new series of figures of orcs acting in a violent fashion, hopefully more violent and more graphically so than these two.

Right now, whenever I go to the studio and try to make something, I get as far as the feet and legs and then end up destroying it. From now on, I'm vowing not to destroy the feet and legs even if I don't end up making the rest of the figure.
