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.

New Giraluna WIP

Finished Cyclopean Giraluna

Leo Lionni's surrealist botany textbook Parallel Botany was one of my earliest inspirations for creating clay objects.  I've made numerous giralunas, night-blooming flowers described by Lionni as the "most parallel of plants, most plantlike of the parallels."  This one is about 15 inches tall and is my first piece that won't fit on my shelf.  Here are the underlying slab pot and the finished giraluna with tendrils, petals, and molded eye.
