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.

Winged IG-88 Menorah

A few years I made a menorah with molds of IG-88 on the front.  IG-88 is the assassin droid from The Empire Strikes Back.  This menorah has only one image of IG-88, but it has wings.  The menorah itself is made from flat slabs of clay, so it's much lighter than my other menorahs.  There is also a very subtle pattern scratched in the clay on the front, but it didn't come out because the glaze is too thick.

I started another slab menorah with more elaborate butterfly wings.  The slabs were still a little moist while putting it together so it may not turn out as sturdy.

This is a spare winged IG-88 that got fired along with the chamsa scraps.
