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.

Dumbo Octopus Sculpture

There really is an organism called the Dumbo octopus.  Octopuses of the genus Grimpoteuthis are some of the rarest and deepest dwelling of their kind.  The protruding fins must have reminded someone of the mutant baby elephant in the well-known Disney film.
