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.

Vinegar Tom Sculpture


Vinegar Tom was a witch's familiar documented by Witchfinder General Matthew Hopkins in 1647 in The Discovery of Witches.  He and his assistants tortured an old woman with sleep deprivation until she named her familiars, which then appeared in front of her, including greyhound/ox hybrid Vinegar Tom.
