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.

More Kiln Disasters

Talz Column:
This piece was fired at too high a temperature and cracked. It's not the correct color due to the high temperature, but it's close to the color I was going to glaze it anyway. I'm going to attempt to glue the pieces together and possibly use brown acrylic paint on the face.

No Face:
I don't know why this one cracked. I assert that it wasn't my fault. I'm planning on gluing it together and painting it with acrylics.

Yithian 2:
This survived mostly intact, except for some tendrils around the mouth. This is the most difficult to fix because I don't have the tendrils and it's not complete without them.
