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.

Rubber Suit Monster Figures

The object used to make this mold was an eraser I bought in sixth grade. I think it was part of a collection of science fiction monsters. This one doesn't look familiar to me, but I'm guessing it was from the Japanese giant nuclear monster genre with the monster played by an actor in a rubber suit who stomps on a crude scale model of Tokyo or some other large city. The one in the middle has city-stomping boots and the one on the right has the face of a kitschy Hula figurine sold to some gullible, souvenir-hungry tourists in Hawaii and subsequently bought by me at a flea market in New Jersey.
