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.

Tales from the Shelf 2

I continue to work my way through the Fiend Folio. This is a carp dragon.

I continue with the Star Wars imagery: Max Rebo, the Ortolan organist with an eating disorder from Return of the Jedi.

And I depart from previous themes with an interpretation of the my favorite song when I was about 3, "Teddy Bears' Picnic." Actually, it's meant to be a tanuki, a Japanese animal known in English as the raccoon dog, the folkloric equivalent of which is a mythic trickster figure with oversized testicles. Of course, there is also a tanuki suit in Super Mario Bros. 3, minus the big balls, and I'm planning on an interpretation of that bit of modern folklore as well.
