Pangolin Design specialises in combining art and design to create unique décor and functional art pieces that reflect the heart of contemporary Africa.
The multi-skilled team creates original craftmanship under the mentorship of well-known South Africa artist, Bruce Little. Bruce’s mentorship has rooted a conservation and environmental ethic that guides every piece.
Bruce Little sculpts to capture the spirit of the wild African creatures he has observed and guarded for most of his life. Self-taught, instinctual, the artist’s technique captures the essential movement and attitudes of his subjects. He sculpts by feel to produce an impression of the animal’s character, rather than an anatomically perfect replica. A committed conservationist as well as an accomplished photographer, Bruce started working in clay to express a private passion – but eventually he was persuaded by friends and family to share his artworks. “I sculpt to honour the animal for what it is, not for what it was,” he explains. Bruce’s personal credo is also his personal crusade: “It is our responsibility to do whatever we can to conserve the world’s diminishing natural resources”.
