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 Rolling Stones Tongue and Lips Top Hat and Stash Box

During a studio event showing student and member work, a neighborhood man approached me to talk about the clay objects I had on display. These particular clay objects had some clay pipes among them and the man became very excited. He told me about a hat that his wife had made with the Rolling Stones lips and tongue logo emblazoned on it with red sequins. He wanted to commission me to make a clay version of it to serve as a stash box. He later brought his sister back with him to show her my pipes and other clay atrocities. She took me aside and apologized for her brother and thanked me for indulging him as he walked around the neighborhood drunk. I got as far as making a small clay version of the hat, but it was obvious that he wasn't coming back after a year or so and I was bored of the project by that time anyway.

Here is the original hat.

Here I am wearing the hat. I look so happy because I'm going to throw it out soon.
