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.

Chwidencha Sculpture

This is a sculpture of a Dungeons & Dragons monster called the chwidencha.  It resembles a spider that is almost all legs.  I gave it a head because my tiers of spider legs weren't dense enough to obscure the inside and it made more sense for it to have a head under there somewhere.  This piece was practice for the Chwidencha Pot.  I like how the glazes came out, but it lacks the angularity that would make it look like a real arthropod.
