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.

Tardigrade 2

This is my second attempt to portray a water bear in clay, inspired in part by the weird tardigrade fetish infecting the internet as of late.

Several of the claw-like structures on the limbs broke off. I'm guessing that this is a common occurrence for tardigrades emerging from vacuum hibernation. It's a small price to pay.
