Aberrant Ceramics is the artwork of Aaron Nosheny,
ceramicist and potter in Tucson, Arizona.

I work in the medium of stoneware clay and make hand-built pottery, sculpture, hamsas, ornaments, masks, and a variety of other forms.

Self-taught artist on the autism spectrum. I like monsters, insects, weird animals, body horror, horror comedy, Halloween decorations, fast food mascots, kitsch – and all of these creep into my work, but there’s really no overarching theme. I’m just frantically birthing as many clay monstrosities out into the world as I can until I’m no longer able to do so.

This blog has served as a record of my ceramic output since 2006.

Grell Shroom


The best Dungeons & Dragons monsters were the ones influenced by H.P. Lovecraft - the mind flayers, the grell, and to a lesser extent the aboleth.






The grell was a floating brain with a sharp beak, no eyes, and a mass of tentacles.



The Grell Shroom uses a brain-textured mold from a grell toy.
