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.

Squid and Octopus Objects






Tarot Devil

This is a ceramic wall mask in the shape of the Devil from the Rider-Waite Tarot deck.  He's called "The Devil" in keeping with the Judeo-Christian flavor of the deck, but it's clearly the wicked nature spirit Pan under whatever name you choose to call him.

Laboratory Tardigrade

I sold a tardigrade on Etsy a few months ago and the buyer asked me to make a tardigrade seated at a lab bench with a microscope, Petri dishes, and a plate reader.  The processes of drying, bisque firing, and glaze firing have taken about two months.

Hallucigenia Series

This is a new series of sculptural interpretations of the Burgess Shale organism called Hallucigenia.  They are based on the original, incorrect interpretation of Hallucigenia as a worm like creature with spine-like legs and tentacles on its back.  It has since been shown to be related to modern velvet worms and to be a creature with tentacle-like legs and spines on its back.
