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.

Crab Louse WIP

Finished Crab Louse Sculpture

Continuing with my theme of ectoparasites, this is my interpretation of Pthirus pubis, the noble human crab louse.  I like how the shape of the body came out.  I'm still having difficulty interpreting segmented legs in clay.  It's also difficult to capture the bristly textures apparent in the electron microscope images I'm using as models.
