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.

Slobber Cup

This is a cup or bowl in the shape of an imaginary marsupial called the slobber, Reteostium cortepellium. It comes from After Man: A Zoology of the Future by Dougal Dixon, which speculates on the evolution of animal lifeforms on earth fifty million years after the extinction of human beings.

The slobber is a sloth-like marsupial which captures its prey in the sticky strands of mucus secreted from its mouth.

The slobber is blind, but its vestigial eyes are still present behind the algae-colored fur.
