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.

Garden Sculptures


Warthog 1 was damaged in the Falling Shelf Disaster of Twenty Ten.

The mint appeared dead after leaving it inside for a few days, but it has resurrected itself once again. This mint is truly the Body of Christ. Hoc est corpus.


At some point, it's going to be necessary to slaughter the basil plant and make pesto.


This is an interpretation of the Joint of Mutton from Through the Looking Glass. Alice finally gets to be queen. She has a lavish banquet thrown in her honor, but the other two chess queens won't let her eat. They insist on introducing her to each item of food, after which it's considered impolite to eat it.

The small planter to the left of the one with the Dill-Joint is a plant which sprouted in the soil without any help from me. I transplanted it and I thought it was dead, but it lives. I'll try to identify it when it flowers.

The dill hasn't broken surface yet.


This is an effigy of Bill the Cat; due to a life of debauchery and substance abuse, it cannot stand on its own.


This is the result of making clay objects spontaneously and not having a specific model in mind.
