Individual and unique ceramic piggy banks handcrafted with love in Stamford, England. Every pig is created individually from earthenware clay and decorated in a range of colours and styles before being fitted with a perfectly sized cork nose. The pigs make a perfect gift for baby showers, christenings or for anyone who loves pigs!
The first piggy was given as a unique, one-off gift for my first nephew, something he would love as a child and cherish over the years. No two pigs are the same and you can even customise your pig by choosing your favourite ears, colours and the curliness of her tail!
Pigs are available to purchase online and at local craft markets (the next ones are on the 26th November in St John's Church, Harringworth and on 27th November in the Village Hall, King's Cliffe).
All pigs begin life as an unloved lump of white earthenware clay. To start the process, the pig body is thrown on the potters wheel. After drying, the features are added, not forgetting the curly tail. After that, it's fired in the kiln and then glazed and has one last firing before the piggy is ready for his new home.
I also discovered the lovely creations of @claypigs at the weekend - currently dropping hints to the other half about them! #handmadehour
I think I'd have to say the green one..but I do like the multi coloured too. And the pink - I can't choose!
