Clever piggies!

Sonja Moser’s salt and pepper pigs and a beautiful plate by Joan Lord.

Wiggly pig made by  Abram Borgman. (I had the high bid on this one. Woo hoo!)

Stefanie Alley‘s lobster pig.

The clever “porktato” pig, though I forget who made it. (Marah? Kirby?)

Hugh Smallwood’s  pig bench (note the driftwood tail!):

“Pig of the Night” by Bruce Fernald. (He went whole hog on this one!)

Nancy Chusid‘s illustration makes me want to see a whole alphabet book.

Frank and Sam Reece served “pigs in blankets.”

Our postmaster Joy Sprague made some sweet knitted pigs:

Louise Chaplin’s tiny creation caused a bidding frenzy! Everyone wanted it!

Marian Baker not only organized the show, but also made this handsome vase/utensil holder.

The one I didn’t let get away. Brendan Ravenhill‘s salt shaker pig. (Several bids between my first and my last!)

There were so many wonderful pigs at the show; many more than I’ve posted here.  I wish I could report the total of $$ raised for the Islesford Neighborhood House, but it was not yet available. Raffle tickets were sold for Ashley Bryan‘s pig plate. I LOVE his message on the plate. Potter Chris Breedlove won the raffle. It was a fitting bit of luck as she had been so generous in helping Marian with the show and in sewing up a large batch of piggy potholders for sale.

Perfect day for it!




All of the proceeds from the Islesford Pottery silent auction of pigs will go to benefit the Islesford Neighborhood House.

I almost missed out on making my pigs this year, but I had a default donation just in case:

Oh yeah. The ever popular bacon refrigerator magnets!
