/* Pinterest website claiming thingie */ /* That's it for the pinterest thingie */ Aberrant Ceramics: May 2012


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.

Wise Man Objects

These are two more Nativity Scene Objects made from the discarded Nativity Scene I found in the trash, featuring the face of one of the wise men.  The second one also has a weapon belonging to a Star Wars figure.

Chamsa 64

This is Chamsa 64.  I used a bark texture mold.  It's not my prettiest chamsa.  It reminds me of feces.

Tardigrade 3

I sold my first Tardigrade sculpture to a buyer on Etsy last month.  I haven't heard back from her after several contact attempts, so I can only hope that Tardigrade 1 made it safely to the U.K.

This is my third Tardigrade

Beholder 15

This is Beholder 15, the final beholder in this series of five.

Unfired Kenku Miniature

I started playing in a new game of D&D Encounters.  This is the character I'm going to be playing:  a Kenku Assassin named Ulin.  Kenku are crow-like humanoids.  I would like to add that I truly despise the new Blogger editor.

Mother's Day Spiky Pot WIP

This is my first pot made from coils.  It has 73 spikes, took four hours to make, and, yes, it's going to be a Mother's Day present.

Achaierai Coloring Book

After many weeks waiting on my shelf, the Achaierai made it into the kiln and came out intact. I was considering using a combination of glaze and paint, but I decided that only acrylic paints would give me the  bright, cartoonish colors that I want.

The Fifth Beholder

A few months ago, I started a series of five beholders and completed four of them.  This is the fifth.  I have
 the opportunity to display some D&D-related work in a game store and I want to make sure I don't run out of beholders.
