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.

Eye Cup 17 WIP

Finished version of Eye Cup #17

This is Eye Cup #17.  I had an experience a few days ago in which I started to make a few new cups and then got frustrated with the handles and tore them down.  I would normally be disturbed by this (although it was a minimal time investment and no clay was wasted), but this seems to happen at the beginning of every build cycle.  I rebuilt the two cups last night and realized I could form them from one large slab of clay rather than strips of slabs as I've been doing up to now.
