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


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.

Walrus Mask





This is a practice mask for the workshop I'm teaching this weekend. At first I couldn't get the eyes to not look like boobs. I was using large spheres as pupils and I removed them so now it has large round empty spaces as pupils and they look less like breasts. Now I'm looking at and thinking that it's kind of nice to retread into "my five year old could make that" territory.
