Piggy -phantom- bank with cork navel hg006
Glossy black and mottled cream
It is turned in a special way to make it a unique piece. This piggy bank in the shape of a ghost that eats your money keeps it with its natural cork stopper navel. The shape of its phantasmagorical crest is formed spontaneously when closing the upper part to form the hole for the banknotes and is unrepeatable. Do not miss the opportunity to have this little treasure in your hands.

It is a piece with a spontaneous design when making it on the potter's wheel. When closing the shape to make the upper hole folds are formed which I take care to have a undulating and organic shape, they are unique in each piece.
It is about 15-18 cm (6"-7") high by 12 cm (5") wide. It has a hole at the top to insert rolled banknotes, eyes and a sinuous mouth for coins. It has a hole with natural cork stopper to be able to withdraw the money without breaking the piece. It is a small work of high craftsmanship, of elaborate and careful design in all its details.
The base is unglazed, it is something that is normal for handmade ceramic pieces. It is also polished so as not to affect the surface of the furniture if used properly.
This piece is made of stoneware, like the cups, mugs and tumblers of different sizes, and the stoneware bowls, plates, etc. All made to be used with food found in this store. Porcelain with a normal thickness walls and stoneware are the materials used to manufacture the restaurant and home tableware. That makes them food safe, microwave and dishwasher safe, and resistant to sudden temperature changes. There are other pieces like porcelain bowls or salad bowls that also share these characteristics. The interior has a glaze formulated to properly blend with the paste of the piece. So no cracking should form.
Porcelain is a harder material than stoneware, although it is more delicate to work with. It allows to make thinner walls and can be translucent. This makes it perfect for special pieces and lamps and not so much for everyday use ware as those of stoneware or porcelain with normal thickness walls.
I prepare myself the glazes with high quality industrial raw materials. They have balanced formulas so that they melt properly on the piece in the final firing. Thus they are transformed into coloured glass, they become in an inert material that does not be altered with the acids of some foods.
I glazed this piece with a glossy black glaze with a mottled cream glaze on the down side. In the kiln the glazes melt and mix creating unique and unrepeatable effects.
Below you can find other pieces of similar size and capacity that might interest you as well. I select them because they have similar or contrasting glaze or color combinations. This way you can create sets of pieces that are related, or on the contrary, select others that make contrast.
