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.

Bat-Rat-Spider Bas-Relief

I'm pleased to announce I'm no longer a home owner. As I was clearing out various cabinets, I found a lot of unfinished clay work from the early experimental years. Some of it was bad enough to throw away. Other pieces were bad enough to keep.

This is not really a bas-relief, but that's how I was thinking of it at the time, so I'm keeping it as part of the title.

It depicts the monster from the 1959 low-budget science fiction film The Angry Red Planet. I've heard it referred to as a bat-rat-spider.

It was also used on the cover of the Misfits' 1982 album Walk Among Us.
