Horse Play

Better than following the end of the rainbow to find an angry leprechaun hoarding your gold, Elwood keeps your savings safe with nary a neigh. Equal parts magic and stoneware, this enigmatic equine watches your change grow with a rustle of his rainbow mane and a twinkle in his big baby blues. Artfully handmade by JoAnn Stratakos, Elwood features a rubber stopper at the bottom so you don't have to add to the dwindling unicorn population when you're ready to cash in your chips. Handmade in Pennsylvania.

Exclusively at UncommonGoods.

JoAnn Stratakos

Much thought and years of experience go into each piece of pottery by JoAnn Stratakos. All pieces are original designs created and produced exclusively by the artist in her studio in the Pocono Mountains of Pennsylvania. They are made of stoneware clay, which has splendid serviceability and resists chipping. Each piece is hand-dipped in glazes that JoAnn has formulated. Hand-dipping requires more time than spraying, but gives each piece subtle variations and its unique character. The color and shapes are designed to compliment, not compete, with your decor and the foods being served. collection

        Comments about ELWOOD THE RAINBOW UNICORN BANK:

        I am in the process of teaching my four year old daughter how to save money. So this bank was the perfect gift for her. The package got home a few days before I expected, which was a great surprise. As soon as my daughter saw the bank she fell in love. I gave her a few dollars and change to put in there and now she can't stop. Every coin she finds, she puts in the bank. Elwood sits next to her nightstand, he is great for decoration too.

                    Comments about ELWOOD THE RAINBOW UNICORN BANK:

                    I ordered 2 Elwood mugs and 1 Elwood bank as a gift. When they arrived I was appauled at the glaze job. It is running down the side of EACH one. At first I thought, bummer, I got a dud. Then each subsequant one I opened had glaze lines running down it too. We are not talking one line, there are many and it is horribly noticable. I have created pottery myself and this is pure sloppiness. When I am spending $38 on each mug and $45 on a bank I expect it to be well made. Poor Elwood, we expected so much more from a unicorn. This was my first time shopping here and with an experience like this, it will likely be my last.

                    Comments about ELWOOD THE RAINBOW UNICORN BANK:

                    I jut had to buy this for my niece who is having a baby in December. I didn't know it at the time of purchase, but one the names on her baby list was Elwood. She decided on Harvey (chosen for the movie)and she was delighted that the unicorn's name was Elwood. I had no idea until she told me that the other main character in the movie had the same name. It was meant to be. Needless to say, this was a perfect purchase and so meaningful. I didn't want Harvey to have a plain old piggy bank!
