and this little piggy cried wee, wee, wee, all the way home!

this little pig came out of the kiln on monday and yesterday i posted him on my etsy shop... low and behold he has already found a new home in Cincinnati!
john taught me how to make pigs a few years back.  he always said he could sell as many pigs as he could make.  i have to admit that i too have sold them quickly... so why am i not making more???  i enjoy putting them together but can't seem to knock off more than 4 or 5 at a time.  i remember john would make 20 or more in a day, along with whatever else he had in production.  i think i should focus more and set a goal.
one of jeff's first production jobs was making piggy banks.  he used to make them all sizes, sitting and standing.  he keeps saying we should have a pig making competition... something tells me he would be the winner.

i sold a pig at the Celebration to a young man who bought it for his mom for Christmas... their last name is BACON... how cute is that?!


  1. That is one cute pig, love the black spots, farm animals are so popular.

  2. Good lord I sell so many piggies. people love them, and I came to love any kind of piggy! 20+ years of making them so far...yours, btw, is exquisitely cute :)


Don't be shy, talk to me... I won't know your out there if you don't!
