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.

Sporeback Frog

A recent episode of Encounters featured a fork in the plot. The players had to choose one of two quests, one of which involved monstrous frogs. They didn't choose the one with the frogs, but nevertheless I attempted the sporeback frog in clay. The sporeback is a monstrous frog with symbiotic fungi growing out of its back. The fungi explode in a poisonous cloud when the frog is killed.
