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.

Talz Facial Features

I like how the Talz figure came out balanced on its feet, but I'm not completely happy with the face. It's supposed to have two sets of eyes - one for seeing during the daylight hours and one for night, but the daytime eyes seemed too high up on its head. It also has a proboscis instead of a mouth and it didn't really make sense for it to have a jaw. If I thought I could pull off a bust, I would have, but I don't think that's possible, so I made a column instead. Muftak, the Talz in A New Hope looked very fuzzy and I don't think I recreated that effect in clay, but the facial features are a little more to my liking.
