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.

Seju, Zesty, and the Saga of Temmoku Gold

These are still atavisms with their original names, not names that I altered to sound less stupid.

For Seju, I used a glaze called Temmoku Gold. In its first mix, seen here, it was black with gold flecks. The next time it was mixed, it came out a sparkly gold color which I also used extensively. The third mix came out a matte gold which I never bothered to use. Unfortunately, the entities responsible for mixing glazes at Tucson Clay Coop have not been able to recreate either of the first two interesting versions of Temmoku Gold.

Zesty has the letters Z - E - S - T - Y imprinted on the points of its base because it's fun to play with letter stamps.
