"The video shows a three-legged elephant that was first seen a year and a half ago, amazingly still surviving in the African wild and doing fine. During a safari in the month of April 2021, we came across the unusual site of an adult elephant walking on only three legs. Not only were we stunned to see that the elephant managed to be mobile on three legs, but also by the fact that the elephant managed to survive for that long out in the African wild. During early November 2022, I was leading a safari in the Kruger National Park, South Africa. We decided to stop at a watering hole to observe another large herd of elephants busy drinking during the heat of the day. Suddenly I saw one elephant walking funny in the distance and I couldn’t believe my eyes. There he was! The same three-legged elephant without his tail, still with his protective herd."
Eric Landon is a Danish American ceramics artist and designer. He founded Tortus Copenhagen studio with his brother. Eric travels around the world teaching workshops about his craft, and when he throws a wet piece for a class, he can't take it with him. This means he usually has to destroy it after. He finds creative ways to destroy his pieces, either cutting them in half with a string or popping them with his hand or even his mouth. He says he has fun doing this because he gets to "let the piece go."
