Aberrant Ceramics is the artwork of Aaron Nosheny,
ceramicist 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’m just frantically birthing as many clay monstrosities out into the world as I can until I’m no longer able to do so.

This blog has served as a record of my ceramic output since 2006. Want to wade through two decades of my neurodivergent art experiments, including all the failures? You're in the right place!

New Cthulhu Religious Objects, Part 2

These are Cthulhu Idols 4 and 5 from my second set of Cthulhu Religious Objects.  There is one more, but it lost a few extremities.  I glued them back on and I'm going to paint it with acrylic paints.

Cthulhu Idol #4

My other recent Cthulhu figures have had outlines for eyes, but no details.  This one has slightly more detailed eyes and I think it gives it a lot more personality.  It also looks a little cartoonish and I'm guessing that your average Cthulhu cultist might prefer something a little more crude and disturbing, but nevertheless I think this is the template I was looking for.

The view from the front doesn't really work.

Cthulhu Idol #5

Ah, crudité crudity.  This is more likely to be what you find in the secret shrine in a Cthulhu worshiper's basement.
