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.

Contact me if you see something you want to own or you want to commission me to make something for you.

Apple of Discord with Anomalocaris

This was constructed as a symbol to identify myself as a Discordian in a public place. It didn't really work and I was thus not identified as a Discordian. The K is for kallisti, which may or may not mean "for the most beautiful one," a reference to the golden apple thrown by the goddess Eris in a mythological version of the cause of the Trojan War. The modern Discordian movement worships Eris less as a hateful jealous warmonger and more as a trickster goddess who represents chaos in its original sense of raw possibility and who transcends the dualities of order and disorder, creation and destruction.





This is a clay version of the same object. The anomalocaris is glazed and the rest of the apple is painted with acrylics.
