Back In The Studio

Here is one of my new "gear head" pigs.  He was conceived in a fit of perversity.

"What if I made a pig with his legs up in the air?" I asked my studio colleague. "That would be so cool!" was her answer, "only you need to make the piggy smile and give him wings, so he won't be so scary."

So there you have it, a little gear head made to lay on his back. His surface is textured with gears, armatures and old Linotype slugs like the others of this series. His smile is from a "D" and eyes are X and O. He is 4" high and about that in diameter. He has wings of course--he just hasn't figured out how to use them.You will find him at Little Pig Pottery Etsy
