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 with any questions, sales inquiries, or to propose a commission.

Tales from the Shelf 2

I continue to work my way through the Fiend Folio. This is a carp dragon.

I continue with the Star Wars imagery: Max Rebo, the Ortolan organist with an eating disorder from Return of the Jedi.

And I depart from previous themes with an interpretation of the my favorite song when I was about 3, "Teddy Bears' Picnic." Actually, it's meant to be a tanuki, a Japanese animal known in English as the raccoon dog, the folkloric equivalent of which is a mythic trickster figure with oversized testicles. Of course, there is also a tanuki suit in Super Mario Bros. 3, minus the big balls, and I'm planning on an interpretation of that bit of modern folklore as well.
