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.

The Charles Crumb Twisted Cowboy Face

This cowboy face is based on a drawing by Charles Crumb, brother of cuddly-vicious cartoon artist R. Crumb. After seeing Terry Zwigoff's documentary about R. and his brothers, I had a brief frightening vision of myself living with my mother in my 40s, surrounded by sci-fi paperbacks in a cramped bedroom, having random arguments about whose turn it was to use the inflatable bath pillow. Thank Cthulhu that it didn't go down that way.

Charles Crumb's cowboy from an art aptitude test for a correspondence art school.
