Whimsical Wednesday - When Pigs Fly


The Rogue Speaks:

I'm afraid the photo of my flying pig is not the best! Way too much glare! Too late now, though, because I made this piece for my granddaughter a couple of years ago, and it sits on her dresser, in Tennessee. I threw the body as a closed form, then added the nose, ears, and feet. Finally I cut a slot in the top for all her savings. The underside of the pig has a latex plug, so she can take her money out to buy something special. When making my spirit masks, I use a lot of feathers, so I had some on hand to create the wings for this little piggy. My spirit masks are more spiritual than whimsical, but I may post one for your edification and enjoyment at a later date.

Please visit dt.hasse's Whimsical Wednesday to see all the other offerings. We put a lot of thought into our posts each week, and we would like to know that they are appreciated. Your comments mean a lot to everyone who posts an entry each week, so please try to visit these artists to let them know what you think of their creations!
