Within the fingers of Helen Burgess, goofy grins, bloated bellies, and eyes broad with wonder flip endangered or overpassed animals into endearing creatures with playfully exaggerated feelings. The British ceramicist, who works as nosey mungo (in the past), sculpts quirky renditions of natural world and different critters—she prefers to concentrate on conservation problems and species suffering to live to tell the tale— crafting kooky pufferfish coated in spikes and chicks with tiny beaks poking out from their downy, yellow our bodies.
Lately, Burgess is operating on a selection of marine wall hangings, and you'll be able to practice her development, in conjunction with store updates and glimpses into her procedure, on Instagram.
