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.

Creatures Newly Born

I spent tonight making more D&D minis, in addition to a flat version of the Johnny Cash-voiced Space Coyote from the Simpsons episode "El viaje misterioso de nuestro Jomer." The miniatures for this evening are wildens, creatures newly born of the Feywild as a response to the intrusion of the Far Realm on the world. I tried several molds for the faces, including Yoda and Nien Nunb, before settling for working out the faces on my own. I like how they came out. I wasn't successful with the bodies and had to resort to using the minotaur eraser mold yet again.

The wilden in the middle is blindfolded because I was trying to use twist ties to hold them up. I realized that they were more likely to destroy the wildens either now or when they're dry so I removed them while the pieces were still malleable.

And here we have unicorns.
