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.

Ochre Jellies

The Dungeons & Dragons world has always been richly populated with a great variety of slimes, puddings, and jellies. Ochre jellies are super-sized ameboid monsters that scour dungeons looking for any and all organic life they might be able to engulf and consume. They are also the monster stars of this week's episode of D&D Encounters.

This jelly has a skull embedded in its cytoplasm. I also tried to make a skeletal arm, but without a mold it didn't really look like anything and I painted over it.
