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.

Sporeback Frog

A recent episode of Encounters featured a fork in the plot. The players had to choose one of two quests, one of which involved monstrous frogs. They didn't choose the one with the frogs, but nevertheless I attempted the sporeback frog in clay. The sporeback is a monstrous frog with symbiotic fungi growing out of its back. The fungi explode in a poisonous cloud when the frog is killed.
