The "reality version" of the classic piggy bank takes its form from a real pig. Adapting an idea of casting objects in a new material from the art world, it forces people to re-consider 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.
