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.

Sinistar Object 1

Sinistar was a classic arcade game from the 80s.  It was set in space and the player's task was to mine crystals from asteroids to build bombs while enemy ships were also mining crystals to build a gigantic animalistic skull creature which would first taunt you and then devour you.  I only played it a few times.  I found it too difficult to be enjoyable and then there was the matter of the Sinistar itself bellowing taunts like "I hunger, coward!"

I made two Sinistar objects.  I glazed this one and I'm not entirely satisfied with how it came out.  I'm going to paint the next one with acrylics.
