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.

Elemental Grue (Chaggrin)

This is the Chaggrin, an elemental grue from the Plane of Earth from the AD&D Monster Manual II. It spent a long time without spines because I couldn't find the appropriate material. I found a rusty chimney brush in my parents' basement and I knew the grue had found its spines. It still has a vile smell from the epoxy glue, perfect for a hedgehog-like entity with a skeletal head.

The best part is that if you pick it up incorrectly, you might need a tetanus shot.
