It is estimated that around 100 African elephants are killed every day due to an insatiable demand for ivory. This shocking statistic is what spurred British ceramicist Charlotte Mary Pack to action, causing her to undertake an admirable, self-assigned challenge. On World Wildlife Conservation Day (December 4,2018) , Pack stayed awake for an entire 24 hours to handcraft 100 elephant porcelain figurines. Each clay piece represents one elephant killed in the wild, which together create an impactful visual reminder of the gentle giants’ dwindling numbres.
