This is the first in the egg series. I can’t take any pictures of it, because he was made for a pig collector. The pig in behind was created for the collector, but then I found I couldn’t part with him and quickly came up with this guy. As you can see, this is a blown out egg, and the only additions it has are ears, nose legs, and a little tail.
The story of the egg series: Every year a friend gives me teeny little pigs for ‘National Pig Day”. He and his wife speak about thier extensive pig collection. After some years I decided to get them something back. When casually questioning them about the collection though, they assured me they had all pig products easily aquired and collectable. I decided to make them a OOAK piece. (The other pig in the picture) It ended up being part of me (literally, I pulled some of my eyelashes to use for its eyelashes) and couldn’t part with it. In a dillema I was walking by a store that had easter things on display. I looked in and saw the little plastic eggs. It got me to thinking. The egg series is what came of it.
