Aberrant Ceramics is the ceramic artwork of Aaron Nosheny.

I work in the medium of stoneware clay and make hand-built pottery, primitive sculpture, hamsas, and a variety of other forms. My work celebrates and pushes the plasticity of the medium. The content of the work follows an inner landscape of biological obsessions, psychic damage, and bouncy cartoon animals.

Contact me if you see something you want to own or you want to commission me to make something for you.

Giralunas

The Giraluna is an imaginary plant-like entity from Leo Lionni's Parallel Botany. Leo Leonni is best known for psychedelic children's books with whimsical animal characters portrayed in cartoonish water colors on a background of organic prints. He also wrote a psychedelic fake botany book about anomalous undead plant-like creatures.

"This elusive and capricious plant is the Dream Queen of parallel botany."

"In its natural environment it can be preceived only as a nebulous interplay of glimmerings and empty spaces which alternate in the darkness and vaguely suggest where its outlines might be."

"But what could possibly be the function of abstract seeds, quite clearly incapable of generating new plants?"
