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.

Cthulhu Column and Cthulhu Atavism

Lovecraft was not a religious man, but he knew how to create a god who was really worth fearing. Not a Middle Eastern volcano god whose ego burned away the rest of his pantheon. Not a doomed hippie preaching to his chosen ethnic group. Cthulhu is a divine glorification of every fearsome unknown entity that may or may not be lurking in obscure corners of our planet or our universe.
