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.

Sleestak Column

The Sleestak are a species of reptilian/insectoid humanoid beings from the classic seventies Saturday morning TV show Land of the Lost. Land of the Lost involves the adventures of a family of three modern-day (that is, seventies modern-day) human beings trapped in a loop of space-time also occupied by various beings from diverse locations and eras. The Sleestak are brutal and primitive although they are descended from a civilized and highly evolved race.

I like the visceral effect of leaving the back open.
