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.

Driving Wands For Defense Against Aggressive Drivers

This was one of my earlier experiments with functional ceramics.  I made four of these objects called driving wands in 2008 or 2009.  The idea was to use them for defense against aggressive drivers.  They had grotesque faces and I hoped they would stun angry drivers with their confusing glares.  I never tried one because I was afraid it might make aggressive drivers more aggressive instead of leaving them in a confused stupor.

1.  Toothy Grin Driving Wand



2.   Floating Blue Driving Wand.  Floating blue glaze comes out brownish when applied lightly.




 
3.  Bulging Eyes Driving Wand.  This one's handle broke off in the kiln.



4.  Piggy Driving Wand.  I gave this one away and this is the only image I have of it.
