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.

Baby Head Menorah

This is a slab menorah with 37 molded baby heads.  There are two different baby head molds, one with the eyes open and the other with the eyes closed.  The individual heads came out in a variety of different shapes depending on how it was arbitrarily distorted.  It's 8.5 inches long, 7 inches high at the shamus (candle used to light the other candles) holder, and about 2.5 inches thick.
