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.

Small Chamsa Oxide Experiments

I've been working with clay for over eight years and I've decided it's time to start experimenting with oxides.  These are two small chamsas and I don't especially like how either one of them turned out.

This one is colored with black manganese dioxide (MnO2) with Queens glaze. I like the effect of our regular black glaze much more.

 This one uses red iron oxide (Fe2O3), also with Queens glaze.
