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.

Contact me if you see something you want to own or you want to commission me to make something for you.

This is the miniature used to represent my Dungeons & Dragons character. It's meant to be a warlock, an arcane spellcaster which draws his power from nameless entities beyond known space. I find it difficult to work with clay at this scale, but it's still larger than the plastic figures manufactured in China that are popular in the current incarnation of Dungeons & Dragons. I've been told my figure looks like a bear or like the character of Wimpy from the Popeye cartoon.

  • The figure and thus the character lacks hands, having lost them while performing some unspeakable ritual.

  • The character's name is Ningauble, a sorcerer in the short stories of Fritz Leiber.

  • I don't actually know how to role play unless I'm role playing myself. My main reason for playing D&D is to participate in Geek heritage, like an atheist Jew lighting Hannukah candles.
