Aberrant Ceramics is the artwork of Aaron Nosheny,
ceramicist 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’m just frantically birthing as many clay monstrosities out into the world as I can until I’m no longer able to do so.

This blog has served as a record of my ceramic output since 2006.

Broken Goblin

Three out of the four goblins in this series survived intact. This one came out of the kiln with the left arm, the smiling hammer, and the loincloth detached. I tried to reattach them with epoxy glue but I couldn't get it to bond and ended up throwing it out. An hour later, I decided I wanted a last picture of it before sending it off to goblin hell. The top of the head had also broken off, and the left ear was missing. I probably could have found it if I were to spend some more time sifting through the coffee grounds and assorted vegetable matter in the garbage, but I decided I had what I needed for the photo. Its three intact brethren are at the potstud waiting to be glazed.
