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.

A New Era of Aberrant Work

I've had the idea of making sculptures of tardigrades in various amusing poses for a while and I was planning on  making one tonight.  It was going to be a tardigrade sitting on a sofa smoking a bong.  Then I started thinking that I would make the sofa a monstrous sofa like Chairy or Dog Chair from Pee-Wee's Playhouse.  I was worried that the lounging, toking tardigrade would get in the way of the monstrous sofa, so I ended up making two separate pieces.

I reviewed some basic tardigrade anatomy before making this and I'm happy with how it came out.

Here is the Monstrous Chair.  I heard Jim Henson singing "Mahna Mahna" on the way home from the pottery studio and I like to think it ushers in a new era of aberrant work.
