Aberrant Ceramics is the artwork of Aaron Nosheny,
ceramicist 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’m just frantically birthing as many clay monstrosities out into the world as I can until I’m no longer able to do so.

This blog has served as a record of my ceramic output since 2006.

Lemurs and Clowns

Recently I looked at some work from 2009. I wanted to try the lemur and evil clown flat hanging sculptures again.

The lemur came out a little rough the first time. After two attempts to recreate it tonight, I like the rough original better. We also no longer have the glaze used for the golden highlights.

It's hard to see in the photo, but the original clown (based on Bart's scary clown bed from The Simpsons episode "Lisa's First Word") got somewhat warped as it dried and doesn't lay flat.

Four small chamsas. It was a productive Saturday night at the studio.
