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.

Dumbo Octopus Sculpture: A Real Sea Critter?

I listed my Dumbo Octopus Sculpture on Etsy and, as a part of my far-reaching and well-thought-out marketing strategy, posted a picture of the Dumbo Octopus Sculpture with my cat Calvin on a Reddit forum entirely devoted to images of cats.

Someone posted a comment showing concern for the sea creature about to eaten alive by a cat.  I'm flattered that someone took my sculpture for a real octopus and it makes me happy to know that there are people like this brave individual looking out for the safety of the small and the slimy.
