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.

Babadook Sculpture

This is a sculptural interpretation of the monster from The Babadook. I was expecting the manganese oxide to come out black instead of brown.  This is one of my very favorite horror films.  Great directing, great acting (especially from the child star), amazing art department.  The film itself is spooky, but the pop-up book that serves to let an evil spirit access to the house is terrifying.  This is based on an illustration from the book.

The image from the film and the pop-up book:
