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.

Megasquid

These two sculptures are inspired by The Future is Wild by Dougal Dixon and John Adams. It's an illustration of what life on Earth might be like 5 million, 100 million, and 200 million years in the future. Humankind is doomed to extinction of course. 200 million years from now, all but a few bizarrely specialized vertebrates are extinct and squid-like creatures have colonized the land. There are intelligent, primate-like creatures called squibbons. There are also lumbering, elephant-like creatures called megasquid.







This is the first megasquid I made. Its mantle was placed incorrectly when it was fired, so I banished it to the arroyos behind my house. My neighbor tried to steal it, so I put it in hole in the ground closer to the house. It's slowly being filled with what passes for soil around here. I want archeologists to dig these things up and speculate about a Cthulhu cult in the Sonoran Desert.
