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.

Megasquid

These two sculptures are inspired by The Future is Wild by Dougal Dixon and John Adams. It's an illustration of what life on Earth might be like 5 million, 100 million, and 200 million years in the future. Humankind is doomed to extinction of course. 200 million years from now, all but a few bizarrely specialized vertebrates are extinct and squid-like creatures have colonized the land. There are intelligent, primate-like creatures called squibbons. There are also lumbering, elephant-like creatures called megasquid.

This is the first megasquid I made. Its mantle was placed incorrectly when it was fired, so I banished it to the arroyos behind my house.

I want archeologists to dig these things up and speculate about a Cthulhu cult in the Sonoran Desert.
