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.

Tully Monster

This is a clay interpretation of the fossil organism known as the Tully monster.  The Tully monster is the state fossil of Illinois, the only place it has been found.  The fossil is not well enough preserved to clearly place the animal in any extant phylum.

Despite the way the name sounds, Tully monster was not a character on Sesame Street.
