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.

Chwidencha Pot

This is a hand-built slab/coil pot with a chwidencha on the lid.  A chwidencha is a Dungeons & Dragons monster resembling a spider with an abnormal abundance of legs.  I love the onomatopoeic name, the sound the thing makes as it scuttles across the stone floor towards you in some dank pit to paralyze and devour you.  The pot is uneven and asymmetrical.  The chwidencha is more spider-like than my last one, but I still haven't solved the problem of creating the illusion of sharp angles necessary to make the jointed legs of arthropods look natural.
