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.

Lira da Braccio with a Mouthful O' Babies

The lira da braccio is an obsolete Renaissance stringed instrument.  There is an image of a decorated lira da braccio in Richard Huber's Treasury of Fantastic and Mythological Creatures that I've been using as a source for several years.

This is my third lira da braccio clay piece.  This one has a mouthful of babies.  I think it looks more like it's vomiting up a mass of babies than actually consuming them.

My first lira da braccio piece with the original image.   
It's for sale here.
