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.

Cannabis Menorah WIP

Finished version of Cannabis Menorah 1

Once there was a young couple in the early 1970s.  They identified with the "counterculture" to some extent although they weren't young enough to really be a part of it.  They did like the pungent herb, though, and found that growing it in the Philadelphia suburbs was a great, economical way to produce a personal supply and a little extra to sell to friends.  These profits were used for such worthy expenses as sending their first child to nursery school.  One of their friends later became a lawyer.  Although the couple no longer regularly smoked, they were still known to partake when socializing with this lawyer.  This menorah is dedicated to that lawyer.
