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.

A New Era of Aberrant Work

I've had the idea of making sculptures of tardigrades in various amusing poses for a while and I was planning on  making one tonight.  It was going to be a tardigrade sitting on a sofa smoking a bong.  Then I started thinking that I would make the sofa a monstrous sofa like Chairy or Dog Chair from Pee-Wee's Playhouse.  I was worried that the lounging, toking tardigrade would get in the way of the monstrous sofa, so I ended up making two separate pieces.

I reviewed some basic tardigrade anatomy before making this and I'm happy with how it came out.

Here is the Monstrous Chair.  I heard Jim Henson singing "Mahna Mahna" on the way home from the pottery studio and I like to think it ushers in a new era of aberrant work.
