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.

Mouth Molds, Part 1

I thought my pots could use some mouths in addition to all these eyes.  I've been wondering what other recognizable body parts I could make as molds.

These are toothy, monstrous mouths:

This one is modeled on Patricia Quinn's lips in The Rocky Horror Picture Show.  It came out backwards and I couldn't figure how to make it look like the teeth were erotically biting the lips.  Also, there is too much space between the teeth and lips.  I've already made a second attempt at this one.
