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 eclectic clay monstrosities. I also love to send them out into the world.

I sell my work in the gallery at Tucson Clay Co-op. I also sell through my Etsy shop.

Most of my work on this blog and on other sites is for sale. If you see something you like, please contact me and I'll list it on Etsy. If it's already sold and you are interested in commissioning something similar, please contact me and we can work out the details.

Commissions are always welcome and I'm happy to discuss options to fit any budget.

Laboratory Tardigrade

I sold a tardigrade on Etsy a few months ago and the buyer asked me to make a tardigrade seated at a lab bench with a microscope, Petri dishes, and a plate reader.  The processes of drying, bisque firing, and glaze firing have taken about two months.

Hallucigenia Series

This is a new series of sculptural interpretations of the Burgess Shale organism called Hallucigenia.  They are based on the original, incorrect interpretation of Hallucigenia as a worm like creature with spine-like legs and tentacles on its back.  It has since been shown to be related to modern velvet worms and to be a creature with tentacle-like legs and spines on its back.
