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.

Giraffe-Goat Sculpture

After the Aberrant Giraffe Pot came out slightly less giraffe-like than I had been hoping, I obtained a plastic giraffe bust from a dollar store to use as a model.  I was disappointed to find that it came out looking more like a goat than a giraffe.  It was later pointed out to me that the model does look more like a spotted goat than a giraffe.  Giraffes have more elongated faces.  The sculpture also lost a horn in the bisque kiln.
