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.

Rotifer WIP

Finished version of Rotifer sculpture

At some point, I made a disparaging remark about rotifers, the tiny, multicellular animal lifeforms which were named for whirling, wheel-like cilia inside their transparent bodies, while attempting to promote my tardigrade sculptures.  Now, I attempt to make amends with a rotifer sculpture.  As I did this, I realized that I didn't have enough information to accurately portray the anatomy of these minute animals.  The organs are partly interpreted from a diagram and partly improvised.
