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.

Sleestak Column

The Sleestak are a species of reptilian/insectoid humanoid beings from the classic seventies Saturday morning TV show Land of the Lost. Land of the Lost involves the adventures of a family of three modern-day (that is, seventies modern-day) human beings trapped in a loop of space-time also occupied by various beings from diverse locations and eras. The Sleestak are brutal and primitive although they are descended from a civilized and highly evolved race.

I like the visceral effect of leaving the back open.
