Aberrant Ceramics is the ceramic artwork of Aaron Nosheny.

I work in the medium of stoneware clay and make hand-built pottery, primitive sculpture, hamsas, and a variety of other forms. My work celebrates and pushes the plasticity of the medium. The content of the work follows an inner landscape of biological obsessions, psychic damage, and bouncy cartoon animals.

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.
