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.

Cthulhu Idol Figures from 2004

I started working with clay in 2004 and these are three crude Cthulhu Idol Figures I made around that time.  The stone gray Cthulhu Idol is one of the very few pieces that I made at home.

I just sold two of them on Etsy.  I feel slightly uncomfortable separating the red and gray Cthulhus from the green one.  This is the accompanying text:

These is a small stoneware clay sculpture of a Cthulhu idol, not so much meant to represent Great Cthulhu Itself, but rather a religious object your average Cthulhu cultist might keep on the mantel in his or her home, or on a child's night table so that it might be illuminated just so when the little angel turns on the night light. Cthulhu fhtagn, little one.
