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.

Tardigrade Empty Nest Syndrome

Finished Tardigrade 4 Sculpture

My good news for today is that my remaining tardigrade sculpture finally sold.  I'm preemptively staving off Tardigrade Empty Nest Syndrome by starting a new series of tardigrade sculptures.  The one I sold had claws on its legs, as real tardigrades do, but they were too thin and some of them broke off (which was of course disclosed in the Etsy listing and blamed on the effects of coming out of vacuum hibernation).  This one has cut-out claws, which looks a little clunkier, but will hopefully fare better on its transition out of vacuum hibernation.
