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.

Radish Spirit

This is the Radish Spirit from Spirited Away. I based the color on the image below, but it doesn't really match the color of the Japanese daikon radish, which is closer to yellow.

Spirited Away takes place at a spa for spirits and I assume the Radish Spirit is meant to be wearing a g-string-like cover up for the time not spent soaking in hot water. The image shows a little flap to cover up whatever genital organs vegetable spirit entities may possess in the front, but I wasn't sure about the back. I gave him the modesty flap in the back because he didn't really have a waist and I didn't think the strap around the back side looked like it would hold.

This image shows the real color of the daikon radish.
