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.

Eye Cup 17 WIP

Finished version of Eye Cup #17

This is Eye Cup #17.  I had an experience a few days ago in which I started to make a few new cups and then got frustrated with the handles and tore them down.  I would normally be disturbed by this (although it was a minimal time investment and no clay was wasted), but this seems to happen at the beginning of every build cycle.  I rebuilt the two cups last night and realized I could form them from one large slab of clay rather than strips of slabs as I've been doing up to now.
