/* Pinterest website claiming thingie */ /* That's it for the pinterest thingie */ Aberrant Ceramics: August 2018


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.

Baby Head Rattle Mug

It's also a rattle.

Pizzaface Mug

I considered glazing the entire mug in the colors of the Italian flag but I didn't want to be accused of cultural misappropriation (again).

March of the Insertables Mug WIP

And a phallic lamprey.  Insertables, one personal massager, and a lamprey.

The Tale of Two Bad Acid Tongue Mice

The Tale of Two Bad Mice was the most disturbing of Beatrix Potter's quaint little animal stories.  A kitten gets lost in the attic of a big house and the mice capture her and try to roll her into a dumpling. 

Satyr Figure

Satyr for Temperance Tarot card.

Satyr dick pic (and out of focus Sriracha bottle):

Lips of The Rodent Cup

Dead-Eyed Caroler Mug

I bought this monstrosity at a flea market in New Jersey around 1995.  I got rid of most of my chaotic kitsch decor from that time, but I can't let this one go.  I'm fascinated that someone thought these pale scary children would look festive and Christmasy.  My confession:  I blackened their eyes to make them look more macabre.

Foul Visage Mug

I sketched this while camping on Mt. Lemmon.  It was getting dark and I couldn't see the page.

Zombie Jesus Love Cup

My first Zombi Jesus Love Cup from 2014.  This one is better and that's why I've included so many photos of it.

Anthraxus Column

Anthraxus is a being from the outer planes from Dungeons and Dragons.  Anthraxus was a daemon, not a demon, not a devil, but a different kind of evil outsider with the head of a diseased ram.

Standing Venus Figure

For the Temperance Tarot card.  Modeled after Venus of Willendorf, but with functional limbs.

Golden Apple Spirit Figure

For the Temperance Tarot card.  I encountered this avatar of the goddess Eris in the woods at night in Pennsylvania 30 years ago.
