This is Baby Barbar, named after Barbar from the gorgeous children's book series of the same name.
Baby Barbar is a touch bigger than Olorien but he's still only small. From his cute little bottom to the end of his cute long trunk he's 13 cm, and he stands approximately 4.5 cm tall. While he's just a baby he'll fit right in whatever space you choose for him. He certainly doesn't take up much room and he'll always remind you of how precious our wild elephants are.
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've always had a massive crush on 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.
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.
