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.

Flooer 2

My first recent piece that did not explode in the kiln, this is a flooer, a magical imaginary animal from After Man by Dougal Dixon. After Man portrays a zoological analysis of the period immediately following the extinction of Homo sapiens. The flooer evolves on a island colonized entirely by bats. Its ears and nose-like sensory apparatus imitate flower petals and it secretes a sweet-smelling substance to attract its insect prey. We don't have the correct shade of crimson available as a glaze, so I'm waiting until I can procure the proper shade of acrylic paint.
