Aberrant Ceramics is the art of Aaron Nosheny.

I make hand-built pottery, sculpture, ornaments, masks, menorahs, and other clay objects.

I also use glazed and painted ceramic objects in digitally constructed illustrations, including a children's book and a Tarot deck.

Rotifer Sculpture

Rotifers are tiny animal lifeforms which are distantly related to arthropods.  They're transparent, cup-shaped creatures which can be viewed under a microscope.  Most of the images I found showed and labeled the rotifer's internal structures and I attempted to recreate this in clay.  Clay is not transparent of course, so it came out looking like the end results of a rotifer dissection.

Some of the structures match what I saw in images and others are added just to make it look like there's a lot going on in there. 

These are my source images:
