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.

Metachamsas Set 4

I spent a lot of time world building when I was a child, sometimes in the context of games like Dungeons & Dragons, but more often by myself, in my head and on paper. I like the shape of these objects formed from the outline of a "chamsa" hand because they resemble a character from one of these worlds. The black glaze came out matte instead of glossy. I thought it might have been due to an error in kiln temperature so I had them glaze fired again, but they came out the same. I'm guessing the glaze was contaminated.

This group of numbered metachamsas were intended to be part of a clock.

This group includes a few rejects from the clock metachamsas as well as various other experiments.
