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.

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.
