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.

Wererat Idol

My wererat idol is based on a inflatable rat used as a satirical mascot by an electrical workers' union in New Jersey. The glaze used for most of the body is called "pussywillow," but applied lightly it comes out mouse gray.

Since this is a wererat, it has the ability to assume a human/rat hybrid form, which is in this case portrayed by its very human pair of buttocks. The buttocks (and paws) were left the natural color of the clay with only a few coats of transparent glaze for that erotic rat-ass shine effect.
