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.

The White Chef

The White Chef is modeled on a plastic statue of a fat, mirthful chef which I bought in a dollar store in December 2012.  The original figure was missing its right hand and, after some careful deliberation, I decided to make my version with a hand puppet where its right hand would be.  The White Chef is the companion piece to The Red Chef, also based on a dollar store figure.

The face was left unglazed.
