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.

Ceramic Alphabet #1

I got a commission to make a ceramic magnet alphabet for a young child.  I loved magnet letters when I was a child, and I was excited to make this, but I find the former teacher in me making comments about how children and ceramics generally result in broken ceramics and how my non-standardized, irregular letters are not an ideal model for a beginning reader.

I decided not to put magnets on these because I think it would interfere with the shape of the letter to have a big, black dot behind each one.  I'm going to make a second set with each letter built on a rectangular background and count this one as a prototype.





I'm also going to post images of each separate letter to show off the glazes, because it's my blog and I'm allowed to be self-indulgent.
