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


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.

Death Crab would have been almost as evocative a genus name as Hallucigenia, but it's Nectocaris (swimming crab), not Necrocaris. This is another Burgess Shale mystery creature which has since found a taxonomic home with the lovely cephalopods.

Disclaimer: This model of Nectocaris is not designed to be used as marijuana paraphernalia. It has no mouth and anus to be exploited as an airway. It's not anatomically correct. As for Nectocaris #3, however...
