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.

Frog Rage

I needed a tiny monstrous frog with fungi on its back for an upcoming Encounters game, but I couldn't manage it at that small a scale, resulting in rage and thrown clay.

Yesterday I attempted the sporeback frog on a larger scale. I like how the mushrooms came out (I have some experience with mushrooms). I'm moderately happy with the face and mouth (I have some experience with protruding tongues). The legs came out looking depressingly primitive.
