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.

Three New Normal Menorah WIPs

I recently sold the Medium Normal Menorah on Etsy.  I'm finding myself reluctant to keep making large slab pots since I'm mostly out of room to store them.  Menorahs, on the other hand, can easily be stored in boxes.

Finished Red Spiral Menorah

Menorah 24 (I have no idea how many menorahs I've made.  I started numbering them at 11 in 2011.) uses the geometric patterns made by a doily.

Finished Purple Sage Menorah

Menorah 25 uses a pattern made by a branch of a shrub with purple flowers growing outside the pottery studio.  Hopefully I'll be able to provide the name by the time the menorah is completed.

Finished Rosemary Menorah

Menorah 26 uses a pattern made from branches of rosemary from my garden.  I felt that the structure for the shamus candle was too narrow in previous menorahs, so I tried making a larger on on this menorah.
