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.

Palo Alto

I'm visiting my sister's house in Palo Alto. This first sculpture was originally meant as a cake topper for her wedding in August, both she and her husband being lifestyle bicycle enthusiasts. It was too heavy to top a wedding cake and was also apparently neatly bisected in transit and now lives on their mantel. In reality they do not have disproportionately enormous noses and rarely wear berets as far as I know. They are also in possession of all of their limbs and are not merely stereotypically French-looking heads perched on a rudimentary tandem bicycle.

The large object to the left of the cake topper is a bicycle-oriented mixed-media piece by my father.

The other piece is a mushroom sculpture I brought with me on the plane.

I may be relocating soon and would love to get rid of some of this absurdly heavy yet excruciatingly fragile clay sculpture rather than dragging it all from Tucson to San Francisco. If you have chanced upon this blog and see something you like, make me an offer.  I'm ready to be reasonable, I tell you.
