Wilbur
The perfect accent for your garden, book store,
or perhaps butcher shop!

This hefty porker is covered in pink paisley swirls and twirls.  I call him Wilbur, and he is surely "some pig!"  With custom-made porcelain letter tiles spelling out quotes from the beloved children's book, Charlotte's Web, by E. B. White, such as, "That pig is radiant!", "There isn't a pig in the whole state as terrific as our pig.", and "Humble.  Now isn't that just the word for Wilbur!"  The green mosaic base includes letter tiles which spell, "Quotes from Charlotte's Web by E. B. White."

Wilbur measures approximately 36" from snout to tail, 20" tall, and 15" wide at the base.  He weighs in at about 200lbs --or a bit more.  State Fair worthy for sure!

Handcut stained glass, vitreous glass tiles, glass millefiori, glass beads, glazed ceramic tile, glass gems, vintage Czech crystal-and-glass buttons, and custom-made porcelain tiles cover him from hoof to ear in paisley swirls of pink, peach, salmon, cream, and magenta.  His base is a confection of green fan-shaped scallops, also created with vitreous glass mosaic tiles, glazed ceramic tiles, and custom-made porcelain tiles.

Wilbur is happy to stand guard by your front door, or in your garden year-round in warmer climates.  In colder climates, during periods when the temperature is below freezing, he prefers to be covered with a waterproof blanket, to protect his grout from cracking due to freeze/thaw cycles.

$6,000.00


I have many more photos of Wilbur if you are interested.  Contact me to view them, or for purchase information.
