/* Pinterest website claiming thingie */ /* That's it for the pinterest thingie */ Aberrant Ceramics: Talz Column


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.

Talz Column

This object cracked in the kiln, but I glued it back together. I had been planning to use the Queens glaze, which is a very light yellowish color with brown highlights. The glue would not have held in the glaze kiln so I painted it instead and some of the hair detail was lost.

I saw an action figure of Talz Jedi Foul Moudama from the Clone Wars TV cartoon and it looks much fluffier and rounder than what I'm producing. I don't think the Talz should be portrayed as mammals.

The day eyes are at least in the same plane as the night eyes in this figure, but I think they're still too small.
