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.

Fiend Devotion

The Fiend Devotion is part of this year's crop of clay Halloween objects. The Devotions are pieces made with parts from a doll mold, in this case the arms, one of which broke off in the kiln. The head is from a candy container which screams and giggles when jostled in any way (see below).

The head resembles the skull face originally from the film serial The Crimson Ghost, which was recycled in the eighties as the logo and mascot for the hardcore punk band the Misfits.
