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.

Fast Food Mascot Mug





Two new versions.  The large one without a handle includes the taco mascot, my least favorite of the six.  Part of what fascinated me about the fast food mythoi was the lesser, deprecated characters.  The Professor had mostly disappeared by the time I was old enough to be aware of the characters, but there he was in some of the McDonaldland murals on the walls at the mall McDonalds.  What heinous act had he committed to be banned from McDonaldland forever?

Handle broke off during transport.


I was fascinated by the marketing pantheons of McDonalds and Burger King in the 70s and 80s.  They were so awkward and incomplete and wrong, just like the pantheons of human cultures.

This is my attempt to create an awkward, incomplete, wrong fast food pantheon of my own.  The taco character sadly didn't fit.  

Their names, from left to right, are π, Bone Thigh, Fry Cosmic, Gregor, and Bun-Bun.
