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.

Wererats, Part 1

When I was in sixth grade, I acquired some erasers shaped like various mythological creatures and aliens from old science fiction films. I've begun to use them on a regular basis as the bodies for my D&D minis. In this season of D&D Encounters, several scenes take place in the underground hideout of a vicious criminal organization called the Dead Rats. Most of the members are wererats.

This one is meant to be a female Dead Rats member, but unfortunately I don't have any female bodies. I designed the body after asking several people around the studio what rat teats look like. At least one person had an opinion on the matter. The body isn't as nice as the molded bodies, and the rodent incisors don't really work, but I like the shiny black eyes.
