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.

The mantelpiece altar in Ivyland, PA. On the far left is a metal sculpture by my father. Slightly left of center is a model of a heart. Exactly in the center is a wizard candle that has been in my possession since I was about 12. Slightly right of center is a small, gold-colored replica of the Ark of the Covenant, courtesy of Archie McPhee. Next to the Ark is a clay object in the shape of my brother's atavistic cat totem (correct me if I'm wrong). Details of my contributions to the mantel are shown below.

The Naked Scary Grandma replica of thrift store kitsch. To the right, a fake phrenology head from my Archie McPhee stage.

A wing├Ęd cat column & the aforementioned atavistic cat totem. I'm not sure if the fact that it now shares a name (if not an orthography) with a character from Jersey Shore makes it taboo.

An unglazed anomalocaris made from dark brown clay (which fires to black).

One of my early menorahs.
