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.

Yorick With the Bad Teeth

Yorick is named for the character from Sam and Friends, Jim Henson's first TV show from the 1950s, who was probably named for the dead guy in the garden from Hamlet.  The design is an interpretation of a Play-Doh toy called Dr. Drill N Fill.  It was a plastic head that opened wide so you could make teeth out of Play-Doh and pretend to drill cavities.

It's meant to be one of the toys on the shelf in the Angry Mophead story.
