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.

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.
