PIGGY: Philanthropic savings bank

Stephanie Tharp

Piggy, with stark and potent simplicity, introduces the notion of charity and directs attention toward others less fortunate. Piggy is comprised of two ceramic vessels—a large 'momma' bank for a child's personal savings, and a smaller 'baby' bank that is designated for the child's charitable savings. Piggy offers children (and even adults) a means to deliberately contribute to our social ecology.
