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.

Dire Rats

I haven't quite mastered the rat body shape yet, but I think these rats can definitely be accurately described as dire.

The first rat came out like a atavistic dachshund.

The second rat lacks limbs.

I think this is one of the mutated, cursed cellar rats from Stephen King's "Jerusalem's Lot."
