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.

Teach Me About Insects (Silverfish WIP)

Finished Silverfish 1 Sculpture

I found some lovely insect flashcards from the early 60s in a thrift store.  They have nice, detailed drawings and for my first clay interpretation, I chose the silverfish.  Not as intrusive as a cockroach, but you're never alone when there's a silverfish afoot.
