Another Piggy Planter Submitted by Nessa June 15th, 2010 Yet another piggy planter. Is s/he a chimney sweep? I guess he’s next to a wall, not a chimney. I dunno, really cute though. A little crazing never hurt anybody.
I’m going to vote for a chimney but how bizarre to plaster the pig right next to it and not give any other association with chimneys like a big broom or poker or something. Of course, here at AWMOK the less sense it makes the better!
Crazing never bothers me. It just makes the object look more ancient and authentic.
I love how pudgy the pig is and I love the pink and blue. The face is almost a little cow-like. Even better.
I vote for a chimney too. In fact, in the story of the three little pigs, didn’t the Big Bad Wolf slide down the brick house chimney and into a boiling pot?
Okay, now that’s making some sense.
Love your ceramics.
Thank you !
oh yeah, the three little pigs…didn’t even occur to me! (sad!) I figured considering the way she’s dressed, it was part of a scene from a springtime roof-top wedding….but um yeah, 3 little pigs makes waaaay more sense!!!
It didn’t occur to me either! That seems like a very logical explanation.
