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’m just frantically birthing as many clay monstrosities out into the world as I can until I’m no longer able to do so.

The Mystery of the Seated Tardigrade WIP

Finished Tardigrade #13 sculpture

I made a seated tardigrade last year.  I'm trying to recreate it for another project, but even with the original object in front of me, I can't figure out how I did it.  I know I shaped it as a whole, cut it apart into rings, and then reassembled the rings.  This is what I came up with tonight and I think it completely fails to capture the feeling of the first one.
