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.

Bust of Ogremoch WIP

View the finished Bust of Ogrémoch here.

The large, hollow slab sculpture of Ogremoch, the Prince of Evil Earth Elementals, did not survive completely intact.  It was doing fine until I started to trim off some of the excess clay around the arms.  They were apparently load-bearing slabs because it started to collapse.  I removed the bottom section so now I have a bust of Ogremoch.  I left a door in the back of the head to place a small candle and I'm hoping to use it as a jack-o-lantern this Halloween.  I'm also hoping to try again with a full figure of Ogremoch after the yearly pilgrimage to the homeland.
