Aberrant Ceramics is the ceramic artwork of Aaron Nosheny.

I work in the medium of stoneware clay and make hand-built pottery, primitive sculpture, hamsas, and a variety of other forms. My work celebrates and pushes the plasticity of the medium. The content of the work follows an inner landscape of biological obsessions, psychic damage, and bouncy cartoon animals.

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

Warlock





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.
