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.

Warthog Pot Top and Bottom

This five-piece Aberrant Warthog Pot is my penultimate piece from 2012.  The top and bottom made it into the glaze kiln, but the three middle pieces are still waiting in line.  I love the way the sculpted warthog itself came out.  I like how the white glaze shows through the darker red-brown glaze.  I like how life-like (if unwarthoglike) the eyes came out.  The coil pot that makes up the base, however, looks extremely primitive and the other pieces are not much better.
