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.

I’m a self-taught autistic artist working in my medium for over twenty years. I like monsters, insects, weird animals, body horror, folk horror, horror comedy, horror in general, Halloween decorations, fast food mascots, kitsch – all of these creep into my work, but there’s really no overarching theme.

I am in love with my medium. I love the process of frantically birthing clay monstrosities, subjecting them to an epic trial by fire, and sending them out into the world.

Seated Cthulhu #1

A few months ago I received a commission for a seated Cthulhu and was given this as an idea of what he wanted.  This was what I came up with and then decided I couldn't sell it for the $20 budget of the commission and made a second one that I felt fit the price better (not an inferior piece, but less detailed).

This is based on a design for a papercraft Cthulhu by paper engineer Phillip Fickling.

Lovecraft's original Elder Sign is inscribed on the sides and August Derleth's version is on the back.  There is also some mysterious fake lettering on the front:
