Ask a question about this product

This red earthenware piggy bank showcases a cityscape with suburbs and a factory district, all appropriately placed. It does include a rubber stopper in the bottom to remove the contents. Tommy Frank is known for his work regarding commentary on economic events. Measures 10" x 10" x 10".


While receiving his MFA in Ceramics from Bowling Green State University, Tommy moved from pottery to sculpting and hand-building pigs. These ceramic pigs range in size, structure, and texture. Some pigs are colossal installations while others are generously-sized sculpted piggy banks. Tommy's sculptures don't always reveal themselves as they are camouflaged, inflated, piled, patched, or skull-scored. These pigs and piggy banks contain coolly explosive content and satirize socio-political topics. Tommy explores both content and surface through hand-building and creating sculptures with silicon molds. Tommy is the Studio Manager of Red Star Studios.
