Making my sweet little hand built ceramic elephants brings me so much joy, they are quirky interpretations of one of the most magnificent and majestic animals on the planet. 

While I have always been in love with Elephants from afar my first real encounter with them was in Laos when I travelled there to see the work of the  Elephant Conservation Centre set on the stunning Nam Tien lake, not far out of the small town of Sayaboury.  

Walking alongside the elephants during one of their daily walks into the forest, watching them playing in the lake, and seeing the care and love they were given, was an extraordinary experience, and cemented an already entrenched love of these animals.  I very much hope I will one day be fortunate enough to meet the African elephant!

Given my interest and love for these magnificent wild and threatened animals it seemed natural that as I learned to hand build with clay over this past year that the first animal I should choose to create was going to be the elephant.
