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.

Warthog Pot Top and Bottom

This five-piece Aberrant Warthog Pot is my penultimate piece from 2012.  The top and bottom made it into the glaze kiln, but the three middle pieces are still waiting in line.  I love the way the sculpted warthog itself came out.  I like how the white glaze shows through the darker red-brown glaze.  I like how life-like (if unwarthoglike) the eyes came out.  The coil pot that makes up the base, however, looks extremely primitive and the other pieces are not much better.
