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.

Contact me if you see something you want to own or you want to commission me to make something for you.

New Body for Aberrant Warthog Pot

I finished the Aberrant Warthog Pot back in February.  It's a sculpted warthog head on a tower of small clay cups.  I thought the cups were too primitive and also, they didn't fit together well and the tower seemed unstable.  I made a new pot for the sculpture.  The form is slightly less crude and the glaze came out very nice (although I missed a few spots on the inside).  The head still doesn't fit right.

The original pot consisting of (barely) nested cups on the left and the new pot on the right:
