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.

Small Chamsa Oxide Experiments

I've been working with clay for over eight years and I've decided it's time to start experimenting with oxides.  These are two small chamsas and I don't especially like how either one of them turned out.

This one is colored with black manganese dioxide (MnO2) with Queens glaze. I like the effect of our regular black glaze much more.

 This one uses red iron oxide (Fe2O3), also with Queens glaze.
