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.

Constructing Handsome Pete

I made the parts for Handsome Pete, the spherically warped, accordion-playing version of Krusty the Klown that dances for nickels down by the pier, but I realized there was no way it would be able to stand up, at least before the clay was dry. I put it together on a flat surface and I'll wait until it's been bisque fired to see if it can balance on one leg as in the image. If it falls apart, I was thinking of attempting the same figure with both feet on the ground. Then life will be worth living and everything will be fine.
