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.

I’m a self-taught autistic artist working in my medium for over twenty years. I like monsters, insects, weird animals, body horror, folk horror, horror comedy, horror in general, Halloween decorations, fast food mascots, kitsch – all of these creep into my work, but there’s really no overarching theme.

I am in love with my medium. I love the process of frantically birthing clay monstrosities, subjecting them to an epic trial by fire, and sending them out into the world.

Sinistar Object 1

Sinistar was a classic arcade game from the 80s.  It was set in space and the player's task was to mine crystals from asteroids to build bombs while enemy ships were also mining crystals to build a gigantic animalistic skull creature which would first taunt you and then devour you.  I only played it a few times.  I found it too difficult to be enjoyable and then there was the matter of the Sinistar itself bellowing taunts like "I hunger, coward!"

I made two Sinistar objects.  I glazed this one and I'm not entirely satisfied with how it came out.  I'm going to paint the next one with acrylics.
