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.

My Productive Tuesday Night at the Studio

There is one episode of this season of D&D Encounters which has a variety of fey plant monsters. They present Twig Blights, Twig Blight Swampvines, and Twig Blight Swampvine Seedlings as separate entities. I already have clay objects suitable for use as the seedlings (the Carrion Vine Seed Pods from March of the Phantom Brigade), but I'm attempting to make easily differentiable minis for the other two entities. These are Twig Blight Swampvines. The last object is meant to be a Dire Rat.

There is an extinct North American mammal called the dire wolf. It was larger and scarier than the extant wolves, so the publisher's formula to make a scarier version of any normal animal is "Dire x" where x is the name of the animal. This is meant to be a dire rat.

Finally, this is Rollo Bones from the children's book Rollo Bones, Canine Hypnotist by Marshall M. Moyer. Thus concludes the fruits of my productive Tuesday night at the studio.
