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.

Spiky Pots 7 and 8 WIPs

These were intended to be two more spiky pots about 6 inches high and 6 inches in diameter.  The first one turned out to be more elaborate than I was expecting and I realized that if I covered the side and back with spikes, there would be no way to pick it up without damaging the spikes.  So I skipped the spikes.
