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.

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.
