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.

Daria Morgendorffer

I like this sculpture because it's true to its cartoonish, (2<x<3)-dimensional roots. I started off trying to imagine Daria in three dimensions, but was quickly reminded that I'm completely unable to render the human body in clay (although this one at least has patellas). So I cut off the back, leaving a reasonably faithful image of the disaffected nineties cartoon teenager in the front and a mass of writhing entrails and pulsating organs in the back (see below).

Note lack of writhing entrails and pulsating organs.

Practice Daria faces. The one on the left appears to have a monocle.
