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.

Unfired Ustigalor

Ever since I acquired the brain mold, I've been thinking of possible uses for it beside to make clay brains. The ustilagor is a brain-shaped D&D monster - a psionic, fungoid, larval creature that happens to look like a human brain. This is my interpretation. Ustilagor are supposed to have legs and be able to scurry across a room like a psionic, fungoid, larval mouse, but I knew any legs I could make would be unlikely to support the body, so I'm going to imagine it zooming across a room on a slug-like slime trail.

Here are some dogface plaques made from a plastic likeness of Cerberus.
