The artist created this Pig entirely from reclaimed metal. He hand draws the pattern on the metal with soapstone and cuts it with a hand held plasma cutter. He then hand hammers and arc welds the pig into shape. It is hand-painted with red milk paint. The metal is sealed with a water-based enamel. This piece can be placed inside or out. Each Pig will have subtle variations. We cut them by hand and each piece of metal has slight color differences. Care: Wipe clean with a damp cloth. If outdoors, you can maintain a shiny metal look (optional) by applying a clear metal enamel, available in a spray can at your local hardware store.
