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.

Fiend Devotion

The Fiend Devotion is part of this year's crop of clay Halloween objects. The Devotions are pieces made with parts from a doll mold, in this case the arms, one of which broke off in the kiln. The head is from a candy container which screams and giggles when jostled in any way (see below).

The head resembles the skull face originally from the film serial The Crimson Ghost, which was recycled in the eighties as the logo and mascot for the hardcore punk band the Misfits.
