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.

Cat Head 4

I considered making salt and pepper shakers shaped like cats for Janell for Christmas, but I couldn't get them to come out anything near cute and I knew she wouldn't like them if they were scary or deranged.  This was one of the cat prototypes.

 This is meant to be wearable art.  It has a hole through the back.  I took several pictures of myself wearing Cat Head 4 as a necklace, but I'm very uncomfortable putting images of myself on this blog, although I have done it a few times in the past and as far as I know, I didn't end up on any Bad Art Pornography sites.  So, here is one bad photo with the eyes blacked out and two (IMO) decent photos with low resolution.  My point is that it can be worn.
