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

Last night I went to the pottery studio. My small shelf in the closet is packed with fragments of broken sculptures, books, a shoebox full of molds, tools, clay, and recent unfired work. To get to the tools, clay, and molds, I have to take everything off the shelf and then put it back on. Each time I move the unfired pieces, it increases the chances that they're going to break. Unfortunately, I damaged this unfired beholder just as I was cleaning up. I knocked off one of the eye stalks. I managed to reattach it with clay slip, but its chances for surviving the bisque kiln intact are still diminished.

Below is another 1e AD&D monster that I'm attempting for the first time. I just wanted to note that I removed the logo from the shoe box because I don't want to be accused of product placement on this blog. Fuck you, New Balance (does that count as product placement?).
