Species Loss IV is a collection of delicate ‘naked’ raku fired porcelain forms hung within an oak frame – giving the work a ‘museum’ look. Each form is purposefully ambiguous but represents a species in serious decline or one that has already become extinct.
Experts calculate that between 0.01 and 0.1% of all species will become extinct each year and if the low estimate of the number of species out there is true – i.e. that there are around 2 million different species on our planet – then that means between 200 and 2,000 extinctions occur every year.
