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.

Eduardo is a character from Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends. The title explains the concept well: a group home for entities dreamed into existence by children but later discarded when the child outgrows the need for imaginary friends, or for a variety of other reasons. Eduardo looks like a mutant biker minotaur, but the character is timid and childlike.

My aim was to copy the character model as closely as possible. I left off the tail and the little hairs on top of the head because I thought they wouldn't survive the kiln (and the perilous stage of being handled by various volunteer before being placed in the kiln). I thought the pinkish color of Eduardo's face could be described as lavender, but apparently lavender is more of a bluish color.
