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.

The New Currency

I noticed that some of my other small clay objects looked like coins, so I decided to make some that were intentionally coins. The original idea was to put currency amounts on them, hence the 10€ inscription on this one, but I found that writing non sequiturs was more satisfying. The face on this one is sampled from Sara's sculpture.

That's Pee-Wee Herman's face and it says "PENIS." No offense to Paul Reubens. I think he's a genius.

This one uses a skull face from a Halloween decoration and the inscription says "In God We Thrust."

This coin uses the Cy-Gor face again and it says "I Ain't Evolved From No Monkey."
