/* Pinterest website claiming thingie */ /* That's it for the pinterest thingie */ Aberrant Ceramics: 2016


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.

I’m a self-taught autistic artist working in my medium for over twenty years. I like monsters, insects, weird animals, body horror, folk horror, horror comedy, horror in general, Halloween decorations, fast food mascots, kitsch – all of these creep into my work, but there’s really no overarching theme.

I am in love with my medium. I love the process of frantically birthing clay monstrosities, subjecting them to an epic trial by fire, and sending them out into the world.

Crested Auklet Chalice WIP

The fourth and last of this series of four pinch pot chalices.

Fuck, that's ugly.  I hope it looks less ugly when it's glazed.

Axolotl Chalice WIP

This is the third of a series of 4 chalices.  This one depicts the popular axolotl salamander.  It's smiling because it loves being alive.

Nucleotides for the Magus Tarot Card

Eye Miter Pot

This is a tall slab pot decorated with a miter (pope's hat) and numerous eyes of different shapes and colors.  The Hierophant Tarot card included a mandrill with a miter and this pot was made in conjunction with that card.

Celestial Telescope Goldfish Chalice WIP

This is one of a series of four hand-built ceramics chalices.  The fish image is inspired by a photo from the Life Nature Library volume titled The Fishes.  It looked like it would collapse if I left it right side up, so I left it to dry upside down.  It's very possible that the stem will collapse to one side.

More Primitive Phallic Pornoceramics WIP

Phallic Monstrosity WIP

I sold out on penis-shaped sculpture this Xmas season.  Time to get busy for next year so all the good boys and girls can get dick-shaped monstrosities under their trees.

Eris Chalice WIP

It's a pinch pot perched on a thick coil of clay with a face based partially on a sculpture of Eris from 2014 and partially on Carrie Fisher's hair buns in Star Wars Episode IV.

More New Magus Objects WIP

Traced versions of the Nirvana Baby and a shark.

Flat Flying Taco Object

I have a food porn blog called Tacos of the Universe.  The flying taco is for the banner.

Flying Moon Faces

A few years ago I made a mold from the face of a statue my parents brought back from Hawaii.  It's labeled as "Hawaiian Fertility God," but I'm not sure if it's a genuine Hawaiian deity or a Tiki Kitsch object for the tourist trade.  These are new objects made from the mold.

The old objects

Sigil Cups

These are primitive shallow cups for use as candle holders.  They contain ensigilizations of desire.
