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.

Pipes, Part 1

I had one box of ceramic objects that I hadn't opened since I moved here in 2010.  Among other things, there are nine pipes inside.  They were meant to be functional pipes for smoking some plant material.  They are functional but the hole through the pipe is wide in some of them.  You would need a large screen and you would probably still be inhaling a fair amount of particulate and perhaps larger-than-particulate matter.  Luckily, they also have some decorative appeal.  They look like caterpillars.  That's decorative, right?
