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’m just frantically birthing as many clay monstrosities out into the world as I can until I’m no longer able to do so.

Return to Opabinia Island

I already did an Opabinia post in 2010, but it came up in a Deviantart conversation and I took some better pictures.  Opabinia is a bizarre fossil invertebrate with five eyes from the Burgess Shale.

This is my second Opabinia.  It's 11 inches long.  I made it some time between 2004 and 2006.




This is my first Opabinia.  It was one of my earliest clay pieces.  The snout broke off and I glued it back on.
