Aberrant Ceramics is the art of Aaron Nosheny.

I make hand-built pottery, sculpture, ornaments, masks, menorahs, and other clay objects.

I also use glazed and painted ceramic objects in digitally constructed illustrations, including a children's book and a Tarot deck.

Giralunas

The Giraluna is an imaginary plant-like entity from Leo Lionni's Parallel Botany. Leo Leonni is best known for psychedelic children's books with whimsical animal characters portrayed in cartoonish water colors on a background of organic prints. He also wrote a psychedelic fake botany book about anomalous undead plant-like creatures.

"This elusive and capricious plant is the Dream Queen of parallel botany."

"In its natural environment it can be preceived only as a nebulous interplay of glimmerings and empty spaces which alternate in the darkness and vaguely suggest where its outlines might be."

"But what could possibly be the function of abstract seeds, quite clearly incapable of generating new plants?"
