Money boxes are on my mind. I signed up for The Gift For Life Product Design Competition hosted by DIFFA (design Industry Fighting Aids). The theme this year is Making Change, which requires designers to submit a piggy bank design.
This brought me to my first money box project while I was still a student. The inspiration was an illustration by Paul Blow and a vintage photograph. I combined the two and created a money box for my handbuilding class. The box measured 5" x 5" x 5". The clay was crank fired to earthenware temperature. The color was Velvet Underglaze. I also pressed letters to form the "Feed Me!". I had a whole collection of them from Portobello Market. Now I just need some money to put in it!
Here is a box painted on a 2D surface and I made a 3D object out of it. The bottom left was a color comp done on the computer.
I have also created a small figurine based on the photo alone. Another effort in turning 2D into 3D
