Aberrant Ceramics is the ceramic artwork of Aaron Nosheny.

I work in the medium of stoneware clay and make hand-built pottery, primitive sculpture, hamsas, and a variety of other forms. My work celebrates and pushes the plasticity of the medium. The content of the work follows an inner landscape of biological obsessions, psychic damage, and bouncy cartoon animals.

Contact me if you see something you want to own or you want to commission me to make something for you.

Giant Otter Miniatures

Last year, I was running Dungeons & Dragons Encounters in a local gaming store. Encounters is a series of adventures provided by the publisher with the intention of attracting new players/consumers to their product.  There was one point during this particular story, Beyond the Crystal Cave, in which the players had the opportunity to use giant otters as mounts.  I made the clay miniatures but they didn't get done in time for the game.  Over a year later, I finally got around to painting them.  Some are more otter-like than others.  One looked more like a tiger cub so I painted it as such.








The otters are designed to allow a D&D mini to be placed on top.  This is illustrated with my Kenku assassin.  It would probably work better with the standard plastic figures.
