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.

Pipes, Part 1

I had one box of ceramic objects that I hadn't opened since I moved here in 2010.  Among other things, there are nine pipes inside.  They were meant to be functional pipes for smoking some plant material.  They are functional but the hole through the pipe is wide in some of them.  You would need a large screen and you would probably still be inhaling a fair amount of particulate and perhaps larger-than-particulate matter.  Luckily, they also have some decorative appeal.  They look like caterpillars.  That's decorative, right?
