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.

More Anatomically Correct Hallucigenia WIP

Finished Hallucigenia Sculpture

I've tried to make hallucigenia in its correct configuration with the spines on top and the tentacles on the bottom before, but it didn't work out, so I always defaulted to the older, incorrect configuration with the tentacles on top and the spines on the bottom.  This is a new attempt at a more anatomically correct hallucgenia, although I'm still not sure about its front-to-back orientation.  I'm also not sure about the shape of the head. The image I used as a source featured an ass-shaped head.
