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.

White Chef WIP

View the finished White Chef here.

In December, I bought two chef figurines at a dollar store.  The first one was a crude representation of a human figure.  I made a clay interpretation and it became The Red Chef.  The other one is a little more detailed, but it was missing its right hand.

The White Chef was more challenging to sculpt, but I'm happy with how it came out.  It has a lot of small pieces attached and its chances for survival are not ideal.

I spent some time trying to decide what to do with the missing right hand in my interpretation.  Someone suggested a skull.  I considered a platter with an octopoid monstrosity on it.  I also considered a hook.  I ended up with a hand puppet resembling a miniature version of the chef.
