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.

The White Chef

The White Chef is modeled on a plastic statue of a fat, mirthful chef which I bought in a dollar store in December 2012.  The original figure was missing its right hand and, after some careful deliberation, I decided to make my version with a hand puppet where its right hand would be.  The White Chef is the companion piece to The Red Chef, also based on a dollar store figure.

The face was left unglazed.
