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.

Halloween Devotions

I'm devoting the month to making Halloween decorations. The plan involved buying some economically priced Halloween objects, making molds of their faces, and creating monstrosities.

The skull face on the right comes from the plastic skull attached to a candy container at the far left of the photo below. It giggles evilly and screams when jostled in any way and the eyes flash red. The candy contained the red dye called Carmine, which is made from crushed beetles and is thus not vegan.

The various doll face molds are from this lovely object I bought at Good Will. It has a Disney stamp on it, but I don't recognize the character. It had long fake eyelashes which came off when I made the mold. I made a mold of the eyelash itself and the mold survived the bisque kiln, but somehow I lost it while carrying it to my shelf.
