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.

The khargra is a slightly less than classic monster from the first edition AD&D Fiend Folio. Khargra are creatures from the Elemental Plane of Earth (which itself seems to have gone missing in recent editions of the game) which burrow through solid rock like an earthworm through soil, but presumably without the beneficial effects to human agricultural efforts.

My interpretation of the khargra. The claws are molds of the hands of the "Squidhead"/Tessek figure from Return of the Jedi.

This is the rear view to show that the khargra has an anatomically correct anus. Baby's got back.
