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.

New Giraluna WIP

Finished Cyclopean Giraluna

Leo Lionni's surrealist botany textbook Parallel Botany was one of my earliest inspirations for creating clay objects.  I've made numerous giralunas, night-blooming flowers described by Lionni as the "most parallel of plants, most plantlike of the parallels."  This one is about 15 inches tall and is my first piece that won't fit on my shelf.  Here are the underlying slab pot and the finished giraluna with tendrils, petals, and molded eye.
