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.

Spiky Pots

At my first clay class in 2004, after some brief instruction in hand-building techniques, the assignment was given to make a tea pot in the shape of an animal. I made a sea urchin, but it wouldn't have made a very good tea pot as it lacked a spout or handle. Part of it exploded in the kiln, but enough survived to glaze. I also made a second urchin pot a few months later.

My mother requested a spiky pot and my first reaction was "But I made those when I didn't know anything about clay." I still don't know anything about clay, so I made my first real pot since 2004.
