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.

Vicious Animal Mug 2: Cuddly-Vicious

This is my second Vicious Animal Mug, modeled on Ed the Developmentally Challenged Hyena from The Lion King. It's slightly less vicious than the last one because it's for a friend in Texas who probably prefers her Vicious Animal Mugs a little more cuddly. Cuddly-Vicious is, of course, the combination of adjectives coined by R. Crumb to describe his sexual behavior.

Note the effective use of a wrinkled sheet as a background, with the brightness digitally altered to create a warm, glowing yellow effect.
