Wise man once said: An animal’s eyes have the power to speak a great language. Unlike us humans, who search for our identities almost entirety of our lives, animals know them self for who they really are. This is just one of the many qualities that make animals so extraordinary. Each species has its own characteristic trait that separates it from others. And each remarkable in its own way. When Pho Ceramics started making these stunning miniature art pieces one day I believe this is what was on her mind. And then it just blew up.
But these adorable ceramic animals are practical as well. You can use them as tea or coffee cups, small bowls, and storage containers. Sky is the limit. The process of creating these starts with the multiple 24-hour firings in the kiln, glazing, painting, gold or silver plating. Most often the final product takes up to a couple of weeks to finish, but end product is outstanding. Take a look!
I try to look at ordinary everyday things from a different perspective.
Since my works’ main theme is animals, my inspiration is primarily from nature and from my relationship with it. Ever since I was little I love all living things and through my work I try to show what I see – cute, adorable little creatures.
I graduated Vilnius Academy of Arts a few years ago with a ceramics bachelor degree, so many of the techniques I use are learned in there, but a great deal of them are from my personal experience.
I am constantly looking for new ideas and am implementing them on a regular basis, even now! 2017 aren’t going to be any different. You can expect new shapes, colors and even sizes! And there are still so many animals that I want to make, I’m really excited!
Ceramic animals for the win!
Animals are awesome. Period. Connection we have with these beautiful creatures is as old as human species itself. Artists took inspiration from them for centuries. And I must say, some of the best art pieces are animal related. Animal lovers, you can acquire one or more of these marvelous little sculptures on Pho’s Etsy.
