/* Pinterest website claiming thingie */ /* That's it for the pinterest thingie */ Aberrant Ceramics: November 2012


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.

Phallic Sculpture WIP

This is another piece for my friend's benefit auction.  I was planning on a "penis dog" phallic sculpture similar to the other three I made, but it turned out like this instead.

My Milagros

About a year and a half ago, I started this project with Sara.  We made small, grotesque clay sculptures with plans to paint or glaze them and hang them up with a clay bell.  She finished her own a long time ago, but it took me a long time to prepare mine, but it finally happened and here is the finished object.

This happy clay object was one of my milagros, but I decided not to include it since it's so grim and icky.

Robotron Ornaments

These were meant to be smaller Robotron 2084 objects to be used as Christmas tree ornaments, but they're probably still too heavy.

Robotron Brain #4.

Robotron Hulk

Robotron Tank

Chamsa 80

This is Chamsa 80, with the same color and pattern scheme as the Robotron Brains.

Snake Head Objects

Yoda Objects

I bought a non-functional Yoda watch for $1.50 and these are the tests for the mold.  Came out a little distorted they did.

Chamsas 78 and 79

This is Chamsa 78.  I don't remember what combination of glazes and oxides I used, but it came out this pukey orange color.  The pattern impressed into the clay is a rubber sting ray toy.

This is Chamsa 79, with snakes and copper carbonate.
