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: A Real Sea Critter?

I listed my Dumbo Octopus Sculpture on Etsy and, as a part of my far-reaching and well-thought-out marketing strategy, posted a picture of the Dumbo Octopus Sculpture with my cat Calvin on a Reddit forum entirely devoted to images of cats.

Someone posted a comment showing concern for the sea creature about to eaten alive by a cat.  I'm flattered that someone took my sculpture for a real octopus and it makes me happy to know that there are people like this brave individual looking out for the safety of the small and the slimy.
