Orb, Ceramic Piggy Banks by Studio Arhoj

View all 13 Photos

Quaint coin banks called ORB (from latin orbis= circle) by Anders Arhoj are beautifully hand made earthenware with small town artisan personality. These pieces take me back to Foundery Day Street Fair in the nearby historic village. He provides a whimsy and class together with the care and pride only a local artist would present in their stand.

These banks reflect a Scandinavian craft with Japanese influence. Each one is sealed with a tender cork at the base, dually serving as a stand. Some appear dipped in a glaze that has just a drop or two running down the ball. Others are perfectly clean with distinct lines separating the two tones.

The artist describes this collection, “ORB functions not only as a money bank but also as a piece of clean, abstract sculpture – a classic Scandinavian design product made of honest, natural materials.”

Allison Parker is a proud stay at home mom maintaining a full schedule kissing boo boos and passing out hugs just because. Her days many times are spent between the garden and the kitchen. From a journey of learning whole food eating habits, she's taken on the challenges of baking bread, muffins and cakes from scratch and filling the cellar shelves with scores of her own canned goods each year. Writing is one of those things she does because its part of who she is. That and it's a nice break from the never ending work that comes with raising a family.
