Ceramic Animals by Charlotte Mary Pack – Raising Awareness about Endangered Species

Edgar Degas once said: “Art is not what you see, but what you make others see.” And I couldn’t agree more. Much as Charlotte Mary Pack, young British artist, that creates unique Ceramic Animals using IUCN Red List of endanger species to raise some awareness about this issue. She was growing up on a farm and travelling through Southern and Eastern Africa. Therefore, these two things are fundamental experiences that have instilled Charlotte’s affection for the environment. “No Time for Tea” is an ever evolving collection which incorporates detailed hand built animals on slip cast vessels. On the underside of every piece includes the species name and its ‘status’ in the wild. Critically Endangered, Endagered or Vulnerable.  Most noteworthy is to be able to identify each animal and provides an oppertunity for you to explore more about the specific species and why it is under threat.

Main source of inspiration for me is wildlife and nature. I grew up on a farm so the countryside, and being surrounded by wildlife are key influences that drive my work.

I love physically creating with my hands, so working in clay was a natural choice for me. Usually, I’m drawn to small delicate forms. This explains why I make my animals in small scale. I think it adds a charm about them too!

How can Ceramic Animals help real Animals?

Unique quality and small scale makes these pieces collectable and suitable or any place in the home.  15% of all sales will be contributed to a wildlife conservation charity of Charlotte’s choice. So you are not just buying art piece, you are helping animals as well. The thing I am most excited about is what Charlotte told me when I asked her about her future plans. She said: “I’m working on some larger scale pieces which are in the pipe line!” And I can’t wait to see the new collection. Here is a sneak peek.
