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.

Hallucinogenic Edna

This is a hallucinogenic image of Edna Krabappel (not Crandall), Bart Simpson's perpetual fourth grade teacher. In the episode "El viaje misterioso de nuestro Jomer," Homer eats Guatemalan insanity peppers at a chili cook-off and goes on a psychedelic journey. When he looks at the already grotesque Springfieldians while tripping, they appear even more distorted. This is an interpretation of the image of Edna Krabappel in that episode. When she speaks, she sounds like one of the off-screen adults in the animated Charlie Brown films: "Wauh wauh wauh-wauh. Wauh wauhh. Wauhhhh."

As Robert "Sideshow Bob" Underdunk Terwilliger once said, "You only get one chance with Edna Krabappel." I have now had my chance.

An image of Edna from the episode. I thought she needed a sixth eye to make her symmetrical.
