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.

Cannabis Menorah WIP

Finished version of Cannabis Menorah 1

Once there was a young couple in the early 1970s.  They identified with the "counterculture" to some extent although they weren't young enough to really be a part of it.  They did like the pungent herb, though, and found that growing it in the Philadelphia suburbs was a great, economical way to produce a personal supply and a little extra to sell to friends.  These profits were used for such worthy expenses as sending their first child to nursery school.  One of their friends later became a lawyer.  Although the couple no longer regularly smoked, they were still known to partake when socializing with this lawyer.  This menorah is dedicated to that lawyer.
