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.

Hamadryad Boobs

Beyond the Crystal Cave calls for a hamadryad and this is what I came up with. I was imagining her as a tree spirit, so she has a trunk for a body and branch-like arms. I also thought she should have breasts, but the only breast molds I had were for a larger doll. They would have looked small on the doll, but my hamadryad came out well-endowed rather than slender and willowy. Also, her head is from a resin Halloween statue of a witch and everyone knows that witches have fangs.
