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

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.

Lepelara terrestris

This is a sculpture of Lepelara terrestris, one of the spectral plant species from Parallel Botany, Leo Leonni's psychedelic imaginary botany textbook.  I made it in 2004 or 2005.  Parallel Botany was one of my earliest source books.

Hallucigenia With Dog Head WIP

This is a sculpture of the fossil organism known as hallucigenia with the head of a dog.  It's to replace the broken sculpture that I threw out this morning.

Hallucigenia With Dog Head

This is an old sculpture that was damaged at a craft fair.  I like how dog heads look on hallucigenia bodies.

These are flat clay figures of the Scarecrow, Tin Woodman, and Cowardly Lion from The Wizard of Oz, based on illustrations from the novels.  It's a gift for my nephews.

Ceramic Alphabet #2

Each letter has a background and the glossy black glaze made it difficult to photograph.

I also made Æ and Œ ligatures.
