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 with any questions, sales inquiries, or to propose a commission.

Wizard of Oz Figures

Finished Wizard of Oz Project

These are flat clay figures illustrating the Scarecrow, the Tin Woodman, and the Cowardly Lion from The Wizard of Oz.  The Cowardly Lion is based on W. W. Winslow's illustration from the original novel and the Scarecrow and the Tin Woodman are based on John R. Neill's illustrations from some of the later novels.

Number Mold Objects

These are some other mold experiments to go along with the Clay Americas.






Clay Americas With Numbers

For this second set of Clay Americas, I concentrated on patterns with clock numbers.  And a few skulls.  And a mako root from Star Trek.












Ceramic Alphabet #1

I got a commission to make a ceramic magnet alphabet for a young child.  I loved magnet letters when I was a child, and I was excited to make this, but I find the former teacher in me making comments about how children and ceramics generally result in broken ceramics and how my non-standardized, irregular letters are not an ideal model for a beginning reader.

I decided not to put magnets on these because I think it would interfere with the shape of the letter to have a big, black dot behind each one.  I'm going to make a second set with each letter built on a rectangular background and count this one as a prototype.





I'm also going to post images of each separate letter to show off the glazes, because it's my blog and I'm allowed to be self-indulgent.
