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.

Gargoyle Statue

I have a commission of a gargoyle from the most generous of my patrons.  I used a souvenir gargoyle statue from Notre Dame in Paris as a model.  I haven't been there.

This is the souvenir statue used as a model.  It has a candle holder between the wings.  I didn't copy the candle holder, but I was wishing that I had because I thought it would make it more stable.  However, the piece has survived and I think it looks better without the candle holder.

This is the actual statue that it's based on.
