Aberrant Ceramics is the ceramic artwork of Aaron Nosheny.

I work in the medium of stoneware clay and make hand-built pottery, primitive sculpture, hamsas, and a variety of other forms. My work celebrates and pushes the plasticity of the medium. The content of the work follows an inner landscape of biological obsessions, psychic damage, and bouncy cartoon animals.

Contact me if you see something you want to own or you want to commission me to make something for you.

Nyarlathotep

It rained all night in my corner of the Sonoran Desert and the road to civilization is too flooded for me to go to massage therapy school today. The desert turns into a swamp. The toads are singing. Dragonflies hunt smaller insects in the air.

These sculptures are based on an illustration of Nyarlathotep from S. Petersen's Field Guide to Cthulhu Monsters. In Lovecraft's stories, Nyarlathotep serves as an intermediary between the Outer Gods and lesser beings. This particular avatar of Nyarlathotep is called The Howler in Darkness. The Field Guide is meant to be used in a Cthulhu-themed RPG.



The sculpture on the right has the head of a Burgess Shale organism called Sanctacaris, or "Santa Claws."

Chiqui checks out the unspeakable alien gods emerging from the muck.
