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.

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.
