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.

Wererats, Part 1

When I was in sixth grade, I acquired some erasers shaped like various mythological creatures and aliens from old science fiction films. I've begun to use them on a regular basis as the bodies for my D&D minis. In this season of D&D Encounters, several scenes take place in the underground hideout of a vicious criminal organization called the Dead Rats. Most of the members are wererats.

This one is meant to be a female Dead Rats member, but unfortunately I don't have any female bodies. I designed the body after asking several people around the studio what rat teats look like. At least one person had an opinion on the matter. The body isn't as nice as the molded bodies, and the rodent incisors don't really work, but I like the shiny black eyes.
