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.

Eris Idol 1

I had an idea to make idols of Eris, the Greek goddess of chaos, similar to the primitive Cthulhu idols I had been making.  Since Eris is a deity of human appearance rather than an octopoid monstrosity, this came out even cruder than I was expecting.  It looks ridiculous and I think that's appropriate. The reason for the hair color is that I once had a dream of Eris with blue hair.

Here are the Christmas ornament and illustration from D'aulaires' Book of Greek Myths that were the models for this idol.
