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.

Cockroach Cup 1

In 2001 I bought a ceramic mug with a lump on the bottom painted to look like a cockroach so that when you finish your coffee and get to the bottom you either think, "Fuck, there's a cockroach in my cup." or "That cockroach-on-the-bottom idea is clever, but the cockroach isn't very realistic."  I fall into the latter camp so this is my interpretation.  The cockroach is a mold of a plastic cockroach from a post-Halloween vermin sampler.
