I've been carrying around a squeaking toy rat in my backpack for a few years and I finally found a use for it: as a model for this piece. I was thinking of naming it after Brown Jenkin, the rat familiar with human features from H.P. Lovecraft's story "Dreams in the Witch House." I ended up glazing it with a glaze called "Pussywillow," which comes out grayish when applied lightly, so he's just Jenkin rather than Brown Jenkin.
Aberrant Ceramics is the clay art of Aaron Nosheny.
The content ranges from interpretations of geek culture icons, replicas of odd life forms real and imaginary, hand-built pottery with sculptural elements, and Judaica. It is my great joy to produce these clay monstrosities. I also love to send them out into the world.
Commissions are always welcome and I'm happy to discuss options to fit any budget.
I sell my work in the gallery at Tucson Clay Co-op.
I also sell through my Etsy shop. The items below are currently for sale. If you're interested in a different item, it's probably for sale as well.
