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.

Eris Idol 1

I had an idea to make idols of Eris, the Greek goddess of chaos, similar to the primitive Cthulhu idols I had been making.  Since Eris is a deity of human appearance rather than an octopoid monstrosity, this came out even cruder than I was expecting.  It looks ridiculous and I think that's appropriate. The reason for the hair color is that I once had a dream of Eris with blue hair.

Here are the Christmas ornament and illustration from D'aulaires' Book of Greek Myths that were the models for this idol.
