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.

Rotifer WIP

Finished version of Rotifer sculpture

At some point, I made a disparaging remark about rotifers, the tiny, multicellular animal lifeforms which were named for whirling, wheel-like cilia inside their transparent bodies, while attempting to promote my tardigrade sculptures.  Now, I attempt to make amends with a rotifer sculpture.  As I did this, I realized that I didn't have enough information to accurately portray the anatomy of these minute animals.  The organs are partly interpreted from a diagram and partly improvised.
