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.

Nothing Exploded

I finally accumulated enough new work to justify reserving a kiln.  I candled it overnight at a low temperature and then turned it up every two hours until it was at its highest setting.  I wasn't entirely sure I had done the whole process correctly and wasn't sure what I was going to find when I opened the kiln 24 hours later.

Nothing exploded and there were no unpleasant surprises.  I actually only had four large pieces and a number of smaller objects to fire.  The rest is other people's work, which also happily survived the firing.  Disclaimer:  the cross and the heart are not my work.
