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


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.

Brain Column

I used to make a lot of "column sculptures," consisting of a sculpted head attached to a column made of nested clay cups.  This piece was an experiment to see if I was still capable of making column sculptures.  I intended to make a cat column and ended up with this monstrosity.

Here are some of my old columns from 2008.
