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.

Broken Goblin

Three out of the four goblins in this series survived intact. This one came out of the kiln with the left arm, the smiling hammer, and the loincloth detached. I tried to reattach them with epoxy glue but I couldn't get it to bond and ended up throwing it out. An hour later, I decided I wanted a last picture of it before sending it off to goblin hell. The top of the head had also broken off, and the left ear was missing. I probably could have found it if I were to spend some more time sifting through the coffee grounds and assorted vegetable matter in the garbage, but I decided I had what I needed for the photo. Its three intact brethren are at the potstud waiting to be glazed.
