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.

IG-88 Dreidel

After seeing the IG-88 menorah, George said, "that's as good as Aaron's Dengar dreidel!"

It seemed like a great idea and I planned a whole series of ESB bounty hunter dreidels. While I waited for the molds of the other bounty hunters' heads to get fired, I made a prototype with IG-88.

I'm not entirely happy with it because it was marred during the glazing process. The glazed part of the clay can't touch the kiln shelf, so it has to be propped up on some metal spikes and they damaged the piece on the shin side when I removed them.

Also, it doesn't really spin very well and will probably break if I continue to test it.
