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.

Chamsa 106

I like the effect of the cobalt oxide with an off-white glaze on top of it better than our "Floating Blue" glaze.  The design is borrowed from a chamsa found online.  I've seen it used as clip art in several places and I don't know who designed it.

This is the original image.  I left off the fish and the Hebrew (mazel, luck).
