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.

Vinegar Tom Sculpture


Vinegar Tom was a witch's familiar documented by Witchfinder General Matthew Hopkins in 1647 in The Discovery of Witches.  He and his assistants tortured an old woman with sleep deprivation until she named her familiars, which then appeared in front of her, including greyhound/ox hybrid Vinegar Tom.
