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.
Contact me with any questions or to propose a commission.

Cat People WIPs

I made some cat people (and one Cthulhu) in the same style as the American Gothic farmer.  Hopefully I'll be incorporating one of them into a mug or pot soon.

The Other Vagina Bowl

I had a commission to make a vagina dentata fruit bowl.  This was the first design.  The design was supplied by the artist commissioning the bowl.

American Gothic Farmer Cup Practice WIP

I want to make a mug with an interpretation of the severe-looking farmer from Grant Wood's painting American Gothic and these are my practice objects for the image on the cup.  I like how the larger images look, but they don't give the farmer enough forehead.

This is the image I want to use for the cup:

American Gothic by Grant Wood.  Note the prodigious forehead on the man.

More Tears WIP

This is Eye Cup #49, another eye cup with tears.  I'm not feeling especially sad, but I like how these are coming out.  I have at least one more planned.

Eye Cups With Tears WIP

I'm finally finished glazing and back to making new things.  Eye Cup #47came out slightly irregular, but it's hard to tell unless viewed from above.

Eye Cup #48 has the same design but it's slightly closer to being circular.
