We’ve all heard about the NatWest Piggy Banks of the 1970’s haven’t we? Well, it’s time to move on!
Swearpig is a patented design No 4039585
SwearPig is a Ceramic Piggy Bank which is produced using top quality slip making a strong earthenware foundation. An off white glaze comes with #OriginalPig and it is then fired again making for a high gloss shiny finish. Our unique cork stopper is sourced from sustainable Cork Oak forests in Portugal where the cork is harvested once every 9 years.
#OriginalPig – Our Original Piggy Bank. Finished in an off-white glaze, this ceramic piggy bank is hand crafted in Derbyshire.
#DoodlePig – Think you’re Picasso do you? Now you can prove it to your friends! Doodle, draw, message and design in your style. This ceramic piggy bank comes with 2 non permanent pens and a cleaning cloth.
#ColourPigs are produced in the same way as #OriginalPig but are fired once, to bisque stage. We then use a variety of mediums to apply by hand onto the #ColourPigs. We only use non-toxic eco-friendly paints.
#TwirlyPigs – Fired once to bisque stage, our pigs are then immersed in a solution and drizzled with various ceramic hues. We then hand twirl them giving a unique twirly pattern. Available in a variety of colours.
#MessagePigs – We’ll give you a clue, they have messages on them, in them even! Ceramic Piggy Banks.
#2TonePigs – Fired once to bisque stage, our pigs are then hand painted with either 1 or 2 colours. They are bright and bold.
#CharacterPigs – Ideas nicked from other areas of art and design. These SwearPigs may look like Superheros or TV and film characters we all know and love.
#SpecialPigs – Completely unique in all aspects. If you are looking for a gift for someone special or indeed someone not so special but you want to chuck a lot of money at them, look no further! These SwearPigs are lovingly hand painted by gifted artists. #SpecialPigs are piggin works of art.
We have a range of piggy banks to suit different tastes and indeed budgets.
