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.

The Friendly, Nurturing, Female Presence of Chairy

Chairy was a furniture-character on Paul Reubens' Saturday morning TV show from the eighties, Pee-Wee's Playhouse. On the show, Chairy was a friendly, nurturing, female presence amidst the various screaming chaos nightmare creatures in the Playhouse household. Her antithesis was a dog-shaped chair named Dog Chair.

My interpretation of Chairy came out a little scarier than I was expecting. If I were Pee-Wee Herman, I don't think I would trust this Chairy to cradle my buttocks.

The real Chairy. Now there's a piece of sentient furniture you can trust your ass with.

This crude object is the Chairy Color Test Owl.
