Killing of the Piggy Bank Vase

Add to

The Killing of The Piggy Bank is a vase designed with a gold hammer, representing the precise moment the piggy bank is struck. The hand made piece illustrates the digital age of currency and the approach to extinction for physical money.

Designed by Marcel Wanders for the Delft Blue collection, the work contributes to the revitalization of old Dutch craft using new ideas for shapes and decoration. The vase is made from white porcelain and printed with a traditional blue floral pattern.
