    • Please get out your sketchbooks
    • Piggy Bank Project Ceramics I
    • As a child we often learned to save our pennies in a piggy bank. But where did piggy banks come from and why are they pigs?
    • Pigs are a very unique animal that serve various functions in our culture. With this project, I want you to create your own original version of a piggy bank.
    • To help get you started… Please write these questions down in your sketchbook  1. What geographical area (state, country, area) did the first piggy banks come from?
    • To help get you started…  2. When did piggy banks originate?
    • To help get you started…  3. What roles do pigs play in our society?
    • To help get you started…  4. How is the word “pig” used metaphorically?
    •  5. Find 3 pictures of piggy banks on the internet. What materials are piggy banks made from?
    •  6. Next, brainstorm 3 ideas of piggy banks for your project. I will provide you the plastic plugs for the bottom of your bank. Remember that clay shrinks and your coin slot on the bank should be slightly larger than you want them to be after firing.
    • Include in your sketches  How will you build your bank?  Slab, pinch, or coil (or combinations of different building methods)  How will you change your bank to look different than the “traditional” piggy bank?  What glazes do you want to use? Color your sketches to illustrate your proposed finished product
