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.

The Charles Crumb Twisted Cowboy Face

This cowboy face is based on a drawing by Charles Crumb, brother of cuddly-vicious cartoon artist R. Crumb. After seeing Terry Zwigoff's documentary about R. and his brothers, I had a brief frightening vision of myself living with my mother in my 40s, surrounded by sci-fi paperbacks in a cramped bedroom, having random arguments about whose turn it was to use the inflatable bath pillow. Thank Cthulhu that it didn't go down that way.

Charles Crumb's cowboy from an art aptitude test for a correspondence art school.
