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 Otyugh

I took a break from the beholders and made an otyugh, a D&D monster than looks something like a pile of garbage with an irregular jagged slash for a mouth and spiked tentacles. This one came out too cute for my taste. I think it's the legs. It looks like a slightly toothier version of one of those Mr. Men characters.

And this is another menorah, although the old lady in the synagogue gift shop said that Orthodox Jews can't use menorahs if the candles (except for the shammus) aren't all on the same level. I, apparently, was the (half-) Jew who didn't deserve to led out of Egypt.
