Big Pig, Little Pig

06 Oct

I was recently commissioned to make a pig sculpture, one similar to my Little Brown Pig.  I decided to make a pair of little brown pigs so that my client could choose a favorite.  I actually ended up selling them both very promptly, which was exciting.

Big Pig

The first one I made of the two sculptures, this guy came out bigger than I first planned.  I also gave him a yellow nose for a change.

– Measures 4 1/2 inches long by 2 1/2 inches tall by 1 1/2 inches wide.

– Made with 16 gauge and 19 gauge dark annealed wire and black and silver craft wire for details and attaching embellishments.  A button, of course, makes the nose, and the ears are leaf pendants.

Little Pig

This is the little sibling to the Big Pig, being smaller and more petite.  This is almost exactly the same size as my original Little Brown Pig, though I gave this one a generous, bright pink nose.

– Measures 3 3/4 inches long by 2 inches tall by 1 1/2 inches wide.

– Made with 16 and 19 gauge dark annealed wire and black and silver craft wire to attach embellishments.  A cheerful pink button makes the nose this time, and the same leaf pendants are used for the ears.

Thanks for looking!
