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.

Yithian 2

This is my second attempt at a Yithian, the time-traveling, body-swapping alien race from H.P. Lovecraft's short story "The Shadow Out of Time." Unfortunately, slightly more than half of the tentacles around the mouth were broken some time between when I left it on the shelf and when it was removed from the bisque kiln. They could have dried out too much and fallen off due to the bisquing process or someone could have handled it less than gently (i.e. how one could safely handle an unbisqued clay bowl) and broken them off.
