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.

Nothing Exploded

I finally accumulated enough new work to justify reserving a kiln.  I candled it overnight at a low temperature and then turned it up every two hours until it was at its highest setting.  I wasn't entirely sure I had done the whole process correctly and wasn't sure what I was going to find when I opened the kiln 24 hours later.

Nothing exploded and there were no unpleasant surprises.  I actually only had four large pieces and a number of smaller objects to fire.  The rest is other people's work, which also happily survived the firing.  Disclaimer:  the cross and the heart are not my work.
