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.

Metachamsas Set 4

I spent a lot of time world building when I was a child, sometimes in the context of games like Dungeons & Dragons, but more often by myself, in my head and on paper. I like the shape of these objects formed from the outline of a "chamsa" hand because they resemble a character from one of these worlds. The black glaze came out matte instead of glossy. I thought it might have been due to an error in kiln temperature so I had them glaze fired again, but they came out the same. I'm guessing the glaze was contaminated.

This group of numbered metachamsas were intended to be part of a clock.

This group includes a few rejects from the clock metachamsas as well as various other experiments.
