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.

Creatures Newly Born

I spent tonight making more D&D minis, in addition to a flat version of the Johnny Cash-voiced Space Coyote from the Simpsons episode "El viaje misterioso de nuestro Jomer." The miniatures for this evening are wildens, creatures newly born of the Feywild as a response to the intrusion of the Far Realm on the world. I tried several molds for the faces, including Yoda and Nien Nunb, before settling for working out the faces on my own. I like how they came out. I wasn't successful with the bodies and had to resort to using the minotaur eraser mold yet again.

The wilden in the middle is blindfolded because I was trying to use twist ties to hold them up. I realized that they were more likely to destroy the wildens either now or when they're dry so I removed them while the pieces were still malleable.

The three wildens together:

And here we have unicorns.
