Black Sequence Piggy Bank

- by Sonny Puckett

This week's theme: Money

It is sought, earned, stolen, won, needed, wanted, despised and loved. It makes the world go round, changes everything, is the root of all evil. There is old money, new money, dirty money and found money. Bank it, invest it, spend it - can't live without it.

-Melissa Morton


Art: Black Sequence Piggy Bank by Artist Sonny Puckett
This Piggy Bank is a unique one of a kind vessel. It is signed on the bottom by me the artist. This will make a nice addition to any piggy bank collection. This piece was months in the making of the form and a lot of experimentation to come up with the right combination of materials that would work well together. . First I made the body with cardboard and plaster cast then coated with joint compound, lots of layers and sanding in-between. I used a piece of black sequenced fabric and some nice metallic trim. It is attached to the body with acid free, non-caustic and neutral PH (7.0) Collage Gel. This piggy bank is not meant for children it is for collecting and displaying. You may use it for coins if you wish.
