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.

Raiju





The raiju is a Japanese cryptozoological species that occasionally fall to earth during thunderstorms. It has been described as resembling a squirrel, cat, weasel, or seahorse, but this particular illustration is of a crab-like creature which fell from the sky in 1796 in Higo-kuni, Japan.

Here is the blog article which is the source of both the information and the original image. The original image is flipped vertically only because the image of my clay copy looks bad when flipped, so if you want to read the Japanese, you'll have to rotate it 180ยบ again.
