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.

Cat Column with Eye Maggots

This is one of a series of column sculptures based on Lewis Carroll characters, in this case the venerable Cheshire Cat. This version has worm-like projections coming out of its eye sockets. It was mostly an experiment to see if they would survive the whole bisque kiln experience. Small projections are often lost.

I submitted this and two other sculptures for an exhibition called "The Monsters That Made Us." I received an email asking me to write an explanation how the sculptures fit into the the theme and I can't think of anything coherent to write.
