/* Pinterest website claiming thingie */ /* That's it for the pinterest thingie */ Aberrant Ceramics: Silverfish 1 and Chamsa 89


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.

Silverfish 1 and Chamsa 89

I had hoped this combination of glazes would come out as a slightly glittery, matte off-white, but it's definitely blue.  I don't like this silverfish enough to be disappointed, but I'm going to look into other options for the second silverfish sculpture.  This sculpture is twice the length of the source image, but the width is the same.  It makes the legs and antennae look distorted.

I used the same glaze combination ("Dry Matte Turquoise" over "Pussywillow") for Chamsa 89.
