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.

Cockroach Cup 1

In 2001 I bought a ceramic mug with a lump on the bottom painted to look like a cockroach so that when you finish your coffee and get to the bottom you either think, "Fuck, there's a cockroach in my cup." or "That cockroach-on-the-bottom idea is clever, but the cockroach isn't very realistic."  I fall into the latter camp so this is my interpretation.  The cockroach is a mold of a plastic cockroach from a post-Halloween vermin sampler.
