Console table, bookcase & buterched pig

Here are the console table and bookcase I mentioned in my last post :) Had a lot of fun making them!

And,. something that's not quite furniture - a butchered pig. Now,. I've made a butchered pig twice before in 2013 and there's no doubt that this one looks better. I recall getting an email the last time I showed one of my butchered pigs, from someone who was having a very strong reaction to the fact that I had made something like that. Lots of negativity in that email, but I wanted to let you know, just in case you feel the same way; don't waste your time sending me an email or yelling at me because I take it as a huge compliment. I think it's AWESOME if my little lump of clay can cause people to react that way.
This is a pig for a butcher's shop/scene - this is how you get meat on your plate. It's simply realism.


  1. Tanja, your furniture is wonderful, but that pig for the butchery IS awesome :D! I live on the countryside and I can tell you that it is very lifelike AND's just clay (but shaped in an awesome way) ;)!
    Kind regards, ilona
