ABOUT ME

Charlotte is an emerging British ceramic artist, based in East Sussex, with a focus on wildlife and an eye for detail. During the summer of 2013 Charlotte attained a first class honours degree in Ceramic Design from Central Saint Martins. Growing up on a farm and travelling widely across Africa are fundamental experiences that have instilled her affection for the natural environment. The combination of both Charlotte’s love for all creatures great and small, and clay, steers her work to explore different ways to draw attention to the declining wildlife and natural world. An artist with integrity, Charlotte donates 15 per cent of profits to support wildlife conservation efforts around the globe. Working from her studio in Rye, East Sussex, is where Charlotte’s work comes to life

SPECIES POTS

Charlotte continues to make endangered wildlife using the IUCN Red List of endanger species. Species Pots series is an ever evolving collection no two pieces are the same. In small scale, each animal is meticulously hand built and carved to fine detail by Charlotte, to sit upon a flawless porcelain vessel. On the underside of every piece includes the species name and its 'status' in the wild - Critically Endangered, Endangered or Vulnerable. It is important to be able to identify each animal and provides an opportunity for you to explore more about the specific species and why it is under threat. Charlotte donates 15 per cent of profits to support wildlife conservation efforts around the globe.

"Even on this tiny scale and using a monochrome palette, Pack expertly recreates rabbit fur, the scale of an armadillo or leathery hide of a seal. She manages to render a whole vocabulary of emotions in these animals, ranging from happiness to grumpiness, slyness to courage."

100 ELEPHANTS IN 24 HOURS

Ceramic artist Charlotte Pack combines her passion for wild life and clay to explore different ways to draw attention to the declining wildlife and natural world.

It is estimated up to 100 elephants are killed each day, driven by the insatiable global demand for ivory.

On Wildlife Conservation Day, 4 December 2018, Pack stayed awake for 24 hours, hand-sculpting 100 elephants in porcelain. Each piece made represents one elephant killed in the wild, creating a visually impactful piece that Pack hopes will raise awareness and challenge the public’s opinion on ivory.

FADING AWAY

Over the last 40 years studies have found that we have lost over 60% of our global wildlife population. ‘Fading Away’ represents some the most vulnerable species on earth, which are disappearing before our very eyes.

Specifically, it depicts all 199 Critically Endangered mammals on the IUCN (International Union for Conservation of Nature) Redlist of Endangered Species. Each individual animal is hand-sculpted and skilfully embodies each creature’s personality, energy and soul. The animals are displayed diminishing in size eventually reaching a vanishing point, symbolising their decline in the wild and the very real threat of extinction.

With ‘Fading Away’, the artist has created a visually impactful piece, in hope of raising the publics awareness of our dwindling wildlife and the fragility of our natural world which we have a responsibility to protect.
