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.

Nothing Exploded

I finally accumulated enough new work to justify reserving a kiln.  I candled it overnight at a low temperature and then turned it up every two hours until it was at its highest setting.  I wasn't entirely sure I had done the whole process correctly and wasn't sure what I was going to find when I opened the kiln 24 hours later.

Nothing exploded and there were no unpleasant surprises.  I actually only had four large pieces and a number of smaller objects to fire.  The rest is other people's work, which also happily survived the firing.  Disclaimer:  the cross and the heart are not my work.
