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


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.

OZ Project WIP

Finished Wizard of Oz Project

A few years ago I made a series of clay objects for my nephew based on the classic children's book Mog the Forgetful Cat.  I wanted to make something for my younger nephew and the plan had been to make something based on the Elephant and Piggie books.  I was prepared to do this, but I have no personal connection to the series.  My sister recently informed me that both boys are into The Wizard of Oz.  I loved L. Frank Baum's Oz novels when I was younger and I was happy to have a project that I would enjoy as much as the nephews.

These are clay drawings of the main non-human characters of the movie The Wizard of Oz and the first book The Wonderful Wizard of Oz.
