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.

Chamsas 72 and 73

These are two larger chamsas, also with oxide experiments.

This is Chamsa 72 with cobalt and Queens glaze.  I'm not sure if it's cobalt oxide or cobalt carbonate.  I think it gives a more consistent blue than the Floating Blue glaze.

This is Chamsa 73 with copper carbonate and Queens glaze.  I like the small streaks of bright green and would probably work better if it were applied more lightly.
