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.

Chwidencha Sculpture

This is a sculpture of a Dungeons & Dragons monster called the chwidencha.  It resembles a spider that is almost all legs.  I gave it a head because my tiers of spider legs weren't dense enough to obscure the inside and it made more sense for it to have a head under there somewhere.  This piece was practice for the Chwidencha Pot.  I like how the glazes came out, but it lacks the angularity that would make it look like a real arthropod.
