/* Pinterest website claiming thingie */ /* That's it for the pinterest thingie */ Aberrant Ceramics: Spiky Nyarlathotep


Aberrant Ceramics is the artwork of Aaron Nosheny,
ceramic artist 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 feel like I'm frantically birthing as many clay monstrosities out into the world as I can.

Spiky Nyarlathotep

This is an interpretation of the Lovecraftian god Nyarlathotep, the Crawling Chaos and Messenger of the Outer Gods, in his incarnation as The Howler in Darkness.

An image of The Howler in Darkness from S. Petersen's Field Guide to Cthulhu Monsters.

Some other Nyarlatotep/Howler in Darkness sculptures on top of the Eldritch Hutch.

Here they are shown more clearly in an older post (ah, 2006, when I was still a disgruntled elementary school teacher and not a disgruntled underemployed Aspergian massage therapist.)
