PHILOSOPHY

 
WHAT WE DO

Laconic Story is a studio that creates colourful animal sculptures and objects, with ceramic as our main medium. We believe in conservation through education, and to do so, we focus on endangered or little known animals, completed with a splash of colour. 

Each work is created with extensive research, drawing references from natural history, along with colour tests and form studies. The practice is organic and often changes to keep up with what a home needs.


Our main goal is to bring animals into people's lives and into their homes and heart.
Our secondary goal is exploration. We would explore and research about animals and colour on any medium we find interesting. Do not be surprise if you see other works available that are not made with clay!

The IUCN Status

More than 31,000 species of animals have been accessed by the IUCN Red List to determine what status should a species belong to depending on their population count and size, habitat range and food source. The status categories include - Extinct (EX), Extinct from wild (EW), Critically Endangered (CR), Endangered (EN), Vulnerable (VU), Near Threatened (NT), and Least Concern (LC). For more information, please visit here. They help to keep track of how many of the precious creatures remain on Earth.
