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.

Gargoyle Statue

I have a commission of a gargoyle from the most generous of my patrons.  I used a souvenir gargoyle statue from Notre Dame in Paris as a model.  I haven't been there.

This is the souvenir statue used as a model.  It has a candle holder between the wings.  I didn't copy the candle holder, but I was wishing that I had because I thought it would make it more stable.  However, the piece has survived and I think it looks better without the candle holder.

This is the actual statue that it's based on.
