My husband and I collect folk art pottery from potters in the Western part of NC as well as a few potters in SC and GA. We have started a collection of pigs from our favorite potters!Several of my friends are always asking just how many pigs do you have in your home. To date, we have 12 pieces of pig pottery and have commissioned 3 other potters to throw us a pig.I also collect blown glass and have a small collection of glass pigs.Now, I could stop counting pigs here but why should I. I have an amazing group of quilting friends who are always sending me surprises through the mail with a pig related theme. I have 3 pig Dotee dolls, pig figurines, pill bottles, ring dishes, sewing buttons, lapel buttons, crocheted pigs, stuffed pigs, even a handmade pig from Australia! My friend from Russia sent me a beautiful tiny glass pig at Christmas! I even have a pig with a bobbing head that I love! And pig fabric galore that will some day turn into a quilt!For now I will show you a photo of a few of our pigs... The pigs were thrown by Albert Hodge, Steve Abee and David Bellar, all from Western, NC.Enjoy the photo!
