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.

Night of the Crocodilians

I have an upcoming D&D game that requires crocodiles. Not dire crocodiles. Not plague-changed, blue-fireball-spewing death crocodiles. Just the big normal hungry kind that live in the sewers of Neverwinter. I've been working with the crocodile body shape and I'm finding it hard to make it fit into a one-inch square.

I made this one on Tuesday. I think it looks like one of those classic D&D combo monsters like the owlbear. This would be a gorillacroc.

These are my four crocodile attempts from tonight. I like the second from the left the best. The first one didn't really work; it seems to have Yoshi's head. I kept it because it comes closest to the size necessary for a medium creature on a grid. They are all biting on various objects so that their mouths will dry in an open position.
