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.

Tardigrade Empty Nest Syndrome

Finished Tardigrade 4 Sculpture

My good news for today is that my remaining tardigrade sculpture finally sold.  I'm preemptively staving off Tardigrade Empty Nest Syndrome by starting a new series of tardigrade sculptures.  The one I sold had claws on its legs, as real tardigrades do, but they were too thin and some of them broke off (which was of course disclosed in the Etsy listing and blamed on the effects of coming out of vacuum hibernation).  This one has cut-out claws, which looks a little clunkier, but will hopefully fare better on its transition out of vacuum hibernation.
