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.

Scared Kid in Bed

At one point I wanted to make a story called The Angry Mop Head, illustrated with clay images. It was about a kid who is afraid of a vicious mop in his closet. He has a nightmare about it in which it chases him through a maze. He trips, the mop catches up with him, and when he wakes up, the mop has replaced his face. The rest of the story illustrates the milestones of the rest of his life, all with a mop face. I made some mop heads (see below), but I found this object at the back of my shelf and decided to glaze it.
