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.

Scared Kid in Bed

At one point I wanted to make a story called The Angry Mop Head, illustrated with clay images. It was about a kid who is afraid of a vicious mop in his closet. He has a nightmare about it in which it chases him through a maze. He trips, the mop catches up with him, and when he wakes up, the mop has replaced his face. The rest of the story illustrates the milestones of the rest of his life, all with a mop face. I made some mop heads (see below), but I found this object at the back of my shelf and decided to glaze it.
