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.

Angry Nun Surrealist Object

This is a clay ornament which I posted on this blog a few years ago, but I was using low quality images that were also too small.  I just listed it on Etsy and I'm posting it again here with a better image.

This is a surrealist object from 2010 meant to be hung on one's wall. The shape has a cross at the top and Cthulhoid tentacles at the bottom. The central image is of an angry nun, the mold of which was taken from a wind-up fire breathing nun toy which breathed sparks out of its mouth. The other molds include tiny skulls from a Halloween decoration, a large skull from a Meerschaum pipe from Turkey, and frogs and a lion from some Japanese toys with interchangeable heads.
