Bank in the Form of a Pig, Gold

  • Sale
  • Regular price $250.00


Bank in the Form of a Pig is part of the “Reality Series” that Harry Allen designed for Areaware, inspired by the beauty of everyday objects. Adapting an idea of casting them in new material from the art world, it forces people to reconsider that which has been cast. Using a technique that involves casting polyester resin in highly detailed silicone molds, designer Harry Allen borrows from the world around him with precision. Each object is chosen with care and often a comic sensibility. Here, a pig that died of natural causes becomes a bank. The bank holds up to $10,000 in dollar bills.

Born in New Jersey in 1964, Harry Allen received a Master’s Degree in Industrial Design from Pratt Institute. In 1993, he established Harry Allen Design, and since then, he has designed furniture, lighting, products, and interiors for a wide variety of international clients.
