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.

Vicious Animal Mug 2: Cuddly-Vicious

This is my second Vicious Animal Mug, modeled on Ed the Developmentally Challenged Hyena from The Lion King. It's slightly less vicious than the last one because it's for a friend in Texas who probably prefers her Vicious Animal Mugs a little more cuddly. Cuddly-Vicious is, of course, the combination of adjectives coined by R. Crumb to describe his sexual behavior.

Note the effective use of a wrinkled sheet as a background, with the brightness digitally altered to create a warm, glowing yellow effect.
