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.

Frog Rage

I needed a tiny monstrous frog with fungi on its back for an upcoming Encounters game, but I couldn't manage it at that small a scale, resulting in rage and thrown clay.

Yesterday I attempted the sporeback frog on a larger scale. I like how the mushrooms came out (I have some experience with mushrooms). I'm moderately happy with the face and mouth (I have some experience with protruding tongues). The legs came out looking depressingly primitive.
