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.

I’m a self-taught autistic artist working in my medium for over twenty years. I like monsters, insects, weird animals, body horror, folk horror, horror comedy, horror in general, Halloween decorations, fast food mascots, kitsch – all of these creep into my work, but there’s really no overarching theme.

I am in love with my medium. I love the process of frantically birthing clay monstrosities, subjecting them to an epic trial by fire, and sending them out into the world.

New Warthog/Old Warthog

Tonight I noticed that my Warthog Column that was in the studio gallery has a broken tusk. There are a lot of kids' classes right now and I automatically blame those little fuckers. It leaves me little choice but to go to the shelves with the children's work and break off a few random pieces.

I made a new one, but I like the original better, although it's not actually my original Warthog Column. It's #3. The first one was damaged when I moved into my apartment in May 2010.
