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.

Wampa Cup

This is a slab vessel (actually two attached slab vessels) with a face modeled after the Kenner Wampa figure.  The Wampa was the vicious humanoid monster from The Empire Strikes Back which was responsible for making Luke Skywalker's face slightly less pretty.  It was barely shown in the original film, but given a little more screen time in the much reviled revised version from the late nineties.  The face of the figure bares little resemblance to the monster in the film and I would like to reiterate that the face on the cup is based on the toy and not the on-screen wampa.
