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.

Constructing Handsome Pete

I made the parts for Handsome Pete, the spherically warped, accordion-playing version of Krusty the Klown that dances for nickels down by the pier, but I realized there was no way it would be able to stand up, at least before the clay was dry. I put it together on a flat surface and I'll wait until it's been bisque fired to see if it can balance on one leg as in the image. If it falls apart, I was thinking of attempting the same figure with both feet on the ground. Then life will be worth living and everything will be fine.
