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.

Contact me if you see something you want to own or you want to commission me to make something for you.

Aberrant Meercat Pot

I'm happy with how the sculptural part of the Aberrant Meercat Pot came out.  I've had several people tell me it looks like a dog, but I think it matches the shape of a meercat's head fairly well.  Here are some meercat photos for reference.


The Aberrant Meercat Pot.  I resisted the urge to try to match the coloration or to try to add texture.






This is my recent dream about a meercat:


I’m at a big party at the studio.  Someone hands me a live meercat.  It keeps biting me with its razor sharp teeth.  Other people are alarmed.  They ask if I let it bite me before.  Someone else holds the meercat and I’m relieved.  Some bites have broken the skin and I wonder if I should seek medical attention.  The meercat has grown into a large, vicious creature which gleefully terrorizes the people at the party.
