Quirky & Magical Ceramic Animals
Lithuania-based shop Pho Ceramics creates magical ceramic animals, which are both adorable and functional. Its artist explains it best: “They are practical as well as cute - you can use them as tea or coffee cups, small bowls, storage containers. Sky is the limit (except for, of course, the unicorn).”
She confesses to Bored Panda: “I get my inspiration from the people’s reactions when they first see one of my animals. The joy and sheer surprise that comes from that first impression creates an enormous burst of creative energy that I spill into a piece of clay.”
To construct one piece, the craftsman takes a couple of weeks to finish due to the long process of multiple 24-hour firings in the kiln, glazing, painting, gold or silver plating. At the end of the day her enchanting creatures are worth it. They seem plucked from a fairy tale. Find them in their Etsy shop.
