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.

Aberrant Giraffe Pot

I modeled this sculptural pot after a piece that I made in 2010.  It was one of my favorite pieces at the time and was badly damaged when a shelf collapsed.  It came out like some kind of unnatural human were-giraffe, hence the name: Aberrant Giraffe Pot.  The functional part of this piece is a hand-built coil/slab pot.
