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.

Rubber Suit Monster Figures

The object used to make this mold was an eraser I bought in sixth grade. I think it was part of a collection of science fiction monsters. This one doesn't look familiar to me, but I'm guessing it was from the Japanese giant nuclear monster genre with the monster played by an actor in a rubber suit who stomps on a crude scale model of Tokyo or some other large city. The one in the middle has city-stomping boots and the one on the right has the face of a kitschy Hula figurine sold to some gullible, souvenir-hungry tourists in Hawaii and subsequently bought by me at a flea market in New Jersey.
