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.

Angry Nun Surrealist Object

This is a clay ornament which I posted on this blog a few years ago, but I was using low quality images that were also too small.  I just listed it on Etsy and I'm posting it again here with a better image.

Angry Nun Surrealist Object for sale at Aberrant Ceramics Etsy Shop

This is a surrealist object from 2010 meant to be hung on one's wall. The shape has a cross at the top and Cthulhoid tentacles at the bottom. The central image is of an angry nun, the mold of which was taken from a wind-up fire breathing nun toy which breathed sparks out of its mouth. The other molds include tiny skulls from a Halloween decoration, a large skull from a Meerschaum pipe from Turkey, and frogs and a lion from some Japanese toys with interchangeable heads.
