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.

Giraffe-Goat Sculpture

After the Aberrant Giraffe Pot came out slightly less giraffe-like than I had been hoping, I obtained a plastic giraffe bust from a dollar store to use as a model.  I was disappointed to find that it came out looking more like a goat than a giraffe.  It was later pointed out to me that the model does look more like a spotted goat than a giraffe.  Giraffes have more elongated faces.  The sculpture also lost a horn in the bisque kiln.
