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.

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.
