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.

Pikaia

Pikaia is a worm-like marine creature from the Burgess Shale. It has a notochord, so it was placed in our very own phylum Chordada(sic). Since pikaia is the earliest known chordate, it could our hallowed ancestor. Thus I present this entry as a form of ancestor worship. Let us get down on our knees and pray to our Great Grandmother Pikaia.






It's really hard to get upset over a crack in my windshield when it's as beautiful as this one.





Eva Walsko, my great grandmother. My attempts to start a cult based on her worship have been poorly received.

Megasquid and Snakebite

The outdoor, defective Megasquid is almost buried by this year's monsoons. I went outside to take pictures of it just after the sun went down. I was standing near it when I heard a buzzing sound under my flimsy Target sandal. I thought it was a large insect, but I had stepped on a small rattlesnake. I quickly moved away as soon as I noticed what it was. The snake retreated to a skeletal creosote bush, obviously very upset. I laughed at my brush with danger, although I don't think the small, scared reptile could have killed me. Going to work tomorrow at the Wretched Institution is much scarier to me than stepping on a snake. I was thinking that maybe it did bite me but I didn't feel it and now the poison is slowly working its way up my legs and torso to my brain. Any moment now I'll be dead. I see tiny fang marks on my foot, but I might be hallucinating them.
