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.

Spiky Pots 7 and 8 WIPs

These were intended to be two more spiky pots about 6 inches high and 6 inches in diameter.  The first one turned out to be more elaborate than I was expecting and I realized that if I covered the side and back with spikes, there would be no way to pick it up without damaging the spikes.  So I skipped the spikes.
