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.

Demon Pot With Skulls

This is a slab pot with an collaged image of a Bhutantese demon.  The source image is from Treasury of Fantastic and Mythological Creatures by Richard Huber.  It's a demon mask from the isolated Himalayan nation of Bhutan.  I think I completely missed the mouth shape of the original image.  The pot was going to be another spiky pot but I thought it would be too difficult to pick up if I added spikes.

Diameter is 5.5 inches.  The pot is also 5.5 inches high, but with the skulls, it's 8.5 inches.
