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.

Bust of Ogremoch WIP

View the finished Bust of Ogrémoch here.

The large, hollow slab sculpture of Ogremoch, the Prince of Evil Earth Elementals, did not survive completely intact.  It was doing fine until I started to trim off some of the excess clay around the arms.  They were apparently load-bearing slabs because it started to collapse.  I removed the bottom section so now I have a bust of Ogremoch.  I left a door in the back of the head to place a small candle and I'm hoping to use it as a jack-o-lantern this Halloween.  I'm also hoping to try again with a full figure of Ogremoch after the yearly pilgrimage to the homeland.
