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.

My Productive Tuesday Night at the Studio

There is one episode of this season of D&D Encounters which has a variety of fey plant monsters. They present Twig Blights, Twig Blight Swampvines, and Twig Blight Swampvine Seedlings as separate entities. I already have clay objects suitable for use as the seedlings (the Carrion Vine Seed Pods from March of the Phantom Brigade), but I'm attempting to make easily differentiable minis for the other two entities. These are Twig Blight Swampvines. The last object is meant to be a Dire Rat.

There is an extinct North American mammal called the dire wolf. It was larger and scarier than the extant wolves, so the publisher's formula to make a scarier version of any normal animal is "Dire x" where x is the name of the animal. This is meant to be a dire rat.

Finally, this is Rollo Bones from the children's book Rollo Bones, Canine Hypnotist by Marshall M. Moyer. Thus concludes the fruits of my productive Tuesday night at the studio.
