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.

Rat Vestige

The game called for dire rats and these are what I managed to produce.

I found a package of sticky rats at Target and they were much more easily recognizable as rats. The packaging also had potential as a mold for more clay rats.

This was the primitive-looking result. I can't decide which photo I like better so I'm including both. Note the details of the texture of the black sweatshirt I use as a background.
