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.

I’m a self-taught autistic artist working in my medium for over twenty years. I like monsters, insects, weird animals, body horror, folk horror, horror comedy, horror in general, Halloween decorations, fast food mascots, kitsch – all of these creep into my work, but there’s really no overarching theme.

I am in love with my medium. I love the process of frantically birthing clay monstrosities, subjecting them to an epic trial by fire, and sending them out into the world.

Teddy Bear Picnic




There's a sequel to How the Grinch Stole Christmas called Halloween is Grinch Night. It was written by Dr. Seuss as an animated cartoon. Here's the plot: A series of eerie supernatural events means that the Grinch is coming to scare the Who populace. A brainy Who kid goes out to find the outhouse and gets blown off track, causing him to come into contact with the Grinch, who is coming down the mountain with his stagecoach full of monsters. The Who kid pesters the Grinch into siccing the monsters on himself instead of on his fellow Whos. It's really spooky and unnerving, but he survives it. By that time all the eerie supernatural events have ceased and so the Grinch has to go home instead. These teddy bear/blowjob bunny cut-outs are some of the monsters in the stagecoach full of monsters. I remember seeing this as a kid, but I only remember the song with the lyrics "I wouldn't go out on a night like this for twenty-two dollars and sixty-five cents." I don't remember the stagecoach full of monsters at all, which is strange because I was a very monster-oriented child. 


This is the space where I was going to write the synopsis for the Grinch sequel, but I talked myself out of it. I promise it has nothing to do with teddy bears.
